Differin & Benzaclin

I went to the dermatologist yesterday and was prescribed Differin cream and Benzaclin for "mild" acne. I had been using the DK regimen successfully for awhile, but then it stopped working as well for me. Lately I'm never without a zit or two or three...or more.

Anyway, the derm didn't want to put me on antibiotics yet, she said to give the topical stuff a couple of months and see how they worked. So I've got my fingers crossed.

I just started with it last night. I'm going to be using the Differin at night and the Benzaclin in the morning.

So I'll be keeping a log and hoping for the best!

Well, I used the Benzaclin yesterday morning, but did not use Differin last night.

I had used Differin the night before and woke up with about 5 new pimples and was pretty damn discouraged about it. They did, however, already pop and you can't tell they were there yesterday, so I guess that's good. The reason I didn't apply Differin last night was because my face was just too dry, I'm going to use it again tonight, I think.
