duac topical gel???

Recommended Posts

Im on duac and i feel as if it is working and i read good things. But almost every says it stopped working at one point. is this true? or does the cream expire or something.

I doubt it will ever stop working completely - but it may become less effective as the bacteria become resistant to one of the active ingredients - clindamycin. This is always a problem when treating acne with topical or oral antibiotics. However this gel is good because it also contains BP which will hopefully kill the strains of bacteria that become resistant to clindamycin.

I tried duac.. it really didn't do anything for my mild acne. I switched to benzaclin, and it worked like a dream, weird considering they're almost the exact formula.
