New Topical Treatments

I received full sizes of my new topical treatments today.

Ziana (clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%) Gel

Finacea (azelaic acid) Gel, 15%

I have been using samples from my dermatologist for the past few days. I have been applying finacea in the morning and ziana in the evening after cleansing my face. I have not noticed any side effects such as drying or irritation (I use CeraVe moisturizing cream and Cetaphil daily moisturizer with spf 15 when I know I will be in the sun). I have noticed that my pimples have be coming to a white head more quickly and starting to heal, but other than that I have not noticed any other changes in my skin. I usually wear makeup everyday, with the exception of some days (none of the makeup products I use have ever broken me out more than my skin normally would).

I will post pictures weekly to document the progress of my skin usingt these two topical treatments.

I like to post pics of my meds too...You have a good regimen going there...Good luck. I have used Azelaic Acid in the past. And I currently use tretinoin, topical clindamycin and benzaclin and spironolactone and ortho tri-cyclen.

Did you like azelaic acid when you used it? How long did it take to start seeing results, if any?
