topical antibiotics vs. vitamin a topicals question....

Recommended Posts

hi everyone, i was wondering what the difference is between using a topical antibiotic like clindagel and a vit. a deriv. like tazorac for acne? Is it necessary to use both at the same time or does one treat a certain type of acne better? Also, with tazorac, can you apply only to breakout prone areas or do you HAVE to apply it all over?

Thanks so much for all the help!

my derm gave me retin a micro, and Triaz (benzoyl peroxide cleanser) for in the shower. i think the retin a does its own job of exfoliating and stuff and then the triaz helped to suppress my breakouts in the breakout phase. 5 weeks in and it is a fairly large improvement
