Combining Benzoyl Peroxide, Retin-A & Doxycycline - safe?

Recommended Posts

I completed a course of Accutane 4 months ago and my acne is reoccurring.

I was provided with a Retin-A tube upon finishing the course of Accutane, and prescribed 100mg Doxycycline two days ago. I also have two tubes of Benzoyl Peroxide from the beginning of the year.

My doctor does not know about the BP tubes.

Is it safe to utilize Benzoyl Peroxide in the morning, and then after cleansing at night time, apply Retin-A?

I hope these chemicals do not contradict each other somehow.

You should probably let your doctor know about the bp tubes, but a combination of bp during the day and Retin-A at night shouldn't hurt. You might have more irritation, so you should watch out for that and back off if need be.
