Solodyn + Topical creams

Recommended Posts

I'm on day 45 (there's an app for counting days) of my regimen:

105mg Solodyn per day


Wash in shower with 10% Perrigo Benzoyl Peroxide wash, leave on for 5 minutes

Benzaclin (Clindamycin Phosphate 1% + Benzoyl peroxide 5%)

Cetaphil moisturizing lotion (for all skin types)


Cetaphil cleansing bar (for all skin types, I believe)

Retin A .04%

Here are 2 pictures from day 1:



Day 44:



I mean I guess you could say slight improvement...

I've noticed no burning/tingling with the Retin A, so I'm gonna ask my derm when I see her in April if I can bump it up to a higher percentage.

I only have a few pimples, mostly on my chin. There are some deep ones under my chin under the skin, they are small but annoying. I also have a thyroglossal duct cyst but it's benign.

Does anyone have any advice on the scarring? I want to start using baking soda and apple cider vinegar in the afternoon. I'm pretty sure my face can handle it, it takes a lot for me to feel a burning lol.

Ok, I've decided to put on baking soda after school every day to help with the PIH. I'm planning on picking up some apple cider vinegar at GNC one of these days and I'll use that too.
