I would like to know if epiduo can be used for longterm, like for years?

I ran out of differin after using close to 3 months. So far so good. Now, he prescribed me epiduo, asking me to try it out. Much more costly and smaller tube. Hope it works!

HI Everyone
Just curious if any of the ladies here are older (late 20s/early 30s) and wondering about their experiences

I am 28, female, mild-moderate acne on my chin only. Always inflamed though.

I was given a prescription today for Differin Gel (i think 0.1%) and 8 weeks of antibiotics to help combat the initial breakout

I would only be putting this on my chin, so trying to figure out how much to use if you are to use a pea size amount on your whole face. maybe half that?

should i start by using it just a couple times a week? (2 times, then 3 times, then 4 times, then 5 times then every day kinda thing?)

did anyone experiences alot of redness? (i used tactuo before and it made me quite red)

how about peeling?

Thanks!


My doc recommended me to apply differin only on the spots, problematic areas. For your case, it should be the chin.  I had breakouts (small spots on my chin and forehead).  My first month routine is this. I apply small amounts of differin on my chin and forehead, followed by moisturizer an hour later. This is to minimize any irritation.
Currently (moving into second month), i just apply differin direct without any moisturizer as my skin is getting used to it. I hope to see results of the pigmentation fading soon.
Hope that helps !

You can try QV day moisturizing cream, which is inexpensive and has SPF of 30. I use daily now together with my concealer for my blemishes and my big pimple.
At night, you can try QV night moisturizing cream (v good when now your skin is c dry) or avene light hydrating cream. QV is really inexpensive, non oily, doesn't clog pores. Avene is more expensive but of course, it is pretty good.

I am on my 62 days taking 20 mg per day. There are prominent red marks on my face..on the verge of giving up.
Till I saw your post, I have the strength to carry on.
This pill really caused one mood to go up and down :(
