need advice for temporary BP cream

Recommended Posts


I ordered Dan's gel a long time ago but my college's mail service is very inefficient and thus I can't get the gel. I've used a tube's worth of Neutrogena On the spot for the last few weeks, and am now all out. I don't have the money to spend on another tube (7 bucks is a lot of money for a broke college kid who needs to buy Christmas gifts! haha). I have 2 older medicines I found, though: Clearasil Maximum Strength Acne Treatment Cream (10% BP) and a prescription from years ago that I never used called Duac (1% clindamycin and 5 % BP). Would it be okay to switch to one of these for just a day or two before Dan's gel arrives? Which one would be best?

If it's just for a day or two, it will probably be fine to use either one. I'd go with the Duac if it isn't expired by now. And don't use the generous amount that Dan recommends with either of those products, you'd probably end up with a very unhappy face.
