Alternative To Clindamycin In The Morning?

04 September 2014 - 08:35 AM

I think my topical clindamycin may be losing its effectiveness. I have been using it for almost 2 years now. Some of my doctors said you can become resistant to it, and some said you can't become resistant to it. I use Tretinoin (atralin) at night. I think BP might be too irritating to combine with a regimen that includes tretinoin. What alternatives are there that I could ask my doctor about for use in the morning that have worked for you? (that are not clinda gel and Bp)?

Anyone Ever Use Sodium Sulfactamide And Sulfur Wash?

06 May 2014 - 01:00 PM

I was prescribed this by my doctor. What's the deal with this stuff? I doesn't seem like it gets prescribed as much as other things. Been using it for 2 weeks and still am experiencing breakouts (I use treninoin at night). I question how something that washes off the skin can work (although it certainly feels like it leaves my skin dry and tight...a sign that medication is being left on my skin to a degree). I really don't know though...maybe I should give it more time. Anyone have any experiences with it? I mean the wash specifically.

Is Retin-A Better At Fading Red Marks Than An Aha?

24 March 2014 - 08:10 AM

So I am on retin a mirco .1%, and have not seen much improvment in hyperpigmentation over the course of 4-5 months.


I seems that alot of people have success with an AHA at fading hyperpigmentation. However, I was thinking that there is no way 10% aha is stronger than retin a micro, which would mean aha wouldn't work for me either.


My question is - Is AHA very good specifically for the treatment of hyperpigmentation (even better than retin a is)?


I'm going to ask my dermatologist if introducing an aha into my regimine is a good idea, but I was wondering what someone who has more knowledge of this stuff thinks. Thanks!
