Benzaclin Twice A Day And Retin A?

Hi everyone!

So my derm put my on Benzaclin 2x/day and Retin A as well. My question is, how would this regimen best be applied? I know benzaclin and retin a aren't supposed to be applied at the same time. I could wash my face and then apply Benzaclin in the morning, then wash my face in the afternoon and apply Benzaclin again, then wash my face at night and apply Retin A, but that seems like alot of face washing which could ultimately irritate my acne/skin.

What would you guys do?

Thanks!

I've never heard of benzaclin twice a day with retin-a

my suggestion is to wash your face in the morning, use the benzaclin

in the afternoon maybe do just do spot treatment with the benzaclin, so that you aren't completely washing your whole face

then retin a in the evening

the benzaclin might just be too harsh though, even with one application a day you'll definitely see results
