I'm not sure why more people aren't given this medication. I use it along with Retin A Micro as a spot treatment. I put it on my chin and around my nose and the moment a little bump begins to appear, this medication dries it out and it's gone before it fully forms. If I happen to get a red inflamed pimple, Vanoxide HC is effective in reducing the bump's redness. Very happy with this product and I am CLEAR.
So far it's been the best I've tried. I got samples of Aczone from from derm but didn't see much difference plus it's way too expensive.
My derm prescribred Vanoxide-HC for me b/c he said I had a lot of inflamation assocaited with my acne. The .5% hydro really helped to reduce the redness and the 5% BP treated the bacterial aspect of my acne. I was very happy with Vanoxide-HC and I highly reccommend it. My derm told me that it has been around for a long time and it's a very good acne treatment.
My derm prescribed Vanoxide HC because it contains benzoyl peroxide, which he wanted me to use to prevent resistance to antibiotics. I have never had good luck with BP, but I thought I would try it since it was something new. The pharmacy was supposed to mix the powder into the teeny tiny jar, but after a week of use I realized they hadn't. Plus the instructions are very unclear, so I was confused about what to do with the cleanser and why the powder vial was in there if it was supposed to be empty.
I used this faithfully, stretching it out to about 2 months (for $56 without insurance, I had to!). My face turned red like I had a constant sunburn, my chin and jawline started flaking, and my forehead and nose looked greasy. After about a month I thought my existing spots looked better, but I am still getting breakouts even though I'm using spiro and doxy with the Vanoxide.
In my opinion, simply not worth it!
