Using Three Meds, Bad Idea?

Recommended Posts

So my dermatologist has prescriped me Finacea, Differin .3%, and Clenia Emollient cream to use on my face twice a day. I've decided to use it once a day because it is just too much for my face to handle. The way I apply my medication is put on Finacea as a first layer on my cheeks, forehead, and chin then wait an hour to apply Differin in the same areas, then end it with Clenia on those areas and my nose.

Is this regimen counterproductive? It's been working decently as of late, but since the last month or so I've been breaking out severely as if I were just beginning retinoids again. I've been using this regimen for about a 7 months but began a year ago with only Differin and Clenia.

Maybe the finacea is too harsh for your skin along with the other products your using.Maybe you should just use the finacea durning the day and the differin at night.Both differin and finacea on so close together even if you space them out hrs apart,i imagine can be highly irritating.Hope this helps.Take care.
