hi, my dermitologist perscribe me DOXYCIN 100m capsules" and a gel called "CLINDOXYL GEL" (clindamycin 1% and benzoyl peroxide 5% ).

i have moderate ance that comes time to time...anyway... i've been taking this medication for about 9 days now.....my major pimples have gone

but it was replaced with blemishes..... (but still have these tiny pimples coming up ..that normal too..also my skin near my jaw line looks kinda rough..... is this all normal.. side effects of the meds i am taken ????)

NOW THE QUESTION IS .... do i still apply the CLINDOXYL GEL" (clindamycin 1% and benzoyl peroxide 5% ). to the blemish areas where the pimples were....

won't that be a bad idea cuz applying the bp , won't it stop the reconstruction of the skin to re-heal...????

i don't know..pls..if anyone know..let me know...?????? sad.gif

I was on both medicines last year, plus Tazaroc gel.

My advice? Prescription topicals and pills can be too harsh and have icky side effects (weight gain, gas, etc). I had cystic acne that cleared up 100% once I started using Dan's regimen. Here's what I do, morning and night:

Purpose cleansing wash, wait 15 min.

Proactiv Repairing Lotion (2.5% bp), wait 15 min.

Cetaphil moisterizer with SPF 15, Parsol 1789, UVA & UVB protection

You're welcome, and good luck clearing you skin. It took about 2-3 weeks for me to see results, but that Proactiv Repairing lotion is a lifesaver. My sister told me they have a Proactiv kiosk at Sawgrass Mills Mall in South Florida (where I live), so I'm gonna see how good their deals are versus eBay.

If your routine is working, why change it?

I was on Clindoxyl before I used Tazorac, (I was also on Mino) and I wouldn't change my routine for a million bucks. I was perfectly clear, but wanted the skin rejuventation benefits of tazorac, so I switched.

It's nice to know what works for others, but if yours is working, assuming it does, just stick with it, and once it works, don't test your luck, keep doing it exactly as prescribed.

Before ro-accutane my acne consisted of blemishes mainly on my cheeks rather than pimples glore.

Into 8th week and my blemishes have cleared real well...my mates said skins looking paler in better way... and i must admit as much as i nit-pick about my skin i have noticed the improvement smile.gif

Maybe that could help?
