benzaclin & tretenoin cream every other day?

Recommended Posts

even though in the mild acne topic it says "what NOT to do for your acne" or something that you're not supposed to use bp and retin-a in conjuction... i'm using retin-a and bp every OTHER day... meaning i apply bp at night one day, and then the next day i use retin-a, next day bp... is this not appropriate? O_O?

What they mean by "in conjuction" is at the same time. You can use BP in the morning and then tretinoin at night, or as you suggested, one by itself for a night, then a different one, etc.

I used Duac with Retin A Micro when I firsted started it, and it helped a lot with the IB... you may want to try benzaclin in the AM, tretinoin at night.
