I went to the derm for the first time today

Recommended Posts

So, she recommended I use Cetaphil as my cleanser and Neutrogena Healthy Defense as my moisturizer. She prescribed me Aczone (dapsone) gel, 5%, twice a day, and Retin-A Micro, .04%, once a day. She also suggested oral antibiotics, but that's something that I'm very wary of trying, so she said we could wait to try that later if these tropical don't seem to be enough. I was just wondering what experiences other people have had with these prescriptions. What can I do to limit irritation? Any tips or advice? Thanks!!
