Can I use Atralin Without BenzaClin Gel? New Forum/Cystic Acne


I'm in the midst of a very bad Cystic Acne outbreak - about 6-7 of them in a 10 day period. I've never had more than one a few times a year before this.

I was prescribed:

BenzaClin Gel - AM

Atralin Gel - PM

Minocycline 100mg, 1 a Day - PM

I read in the pamphlets and online taht BenzaClin and Atralin Gel together can cause very bad irritation. My skin is very sensitive and this concerns me.

I'd like to just start with Atralin Gel every other night and then nightly and see how it goes before starting any BenzaClin.

Do you have to use them together or is Atralin Gel safe to use alone, at night, and just a sunscreen and moisturizer in the AM?

Thank you so much.
