Antibiotics Topically, Like A Lotion Or A Gel? Any Suggestions?

Hello,

I’ve used Dalacin T topical solution in the past and it did help on newly appearing spots, but I am sure there must be other lotions or gels out there that could potentially work better?

I’m not interested in antibiotic creams because they make my skin oily; a lotion or a gel is what I prefer.

So does anyone have some good suggestions or perhaps you have tried something that worked well for you already?

PS: I’ve been on Accutane so my skin is quite thin and sensitive.

Thanks.

I have very sensitive skin and my new derm put me on Cleocin-T gel...just in the morning. I use tretinoin cream at night. I have no idea how it will work yet but he said that if it gets too irritating then cut back a bit. Guess it doesn't have to be used each day to effectively kill acne bacteria.

Thank you, and good luck with your plan, seems like a good combination and hopefully it will work well for you.
