Moisturizer before or after the BP?

I have been using a moistorizer(cleocin T) and then benzamycin. my dermatologist says to use the moistorizer first, I have noticed that other people here have said to do it the oher way. Any thoughts?

me too, but my products are OTC.

Usually you want to follow your prescription, however it's good to remember that all doctors "practice medicine"

isn't cleosin T a topical antibiotic??? I may be wrong, but...

Definitely follow the regimen precisely until you are clear. At that point, if you want to change 1 variable at a time, feel free. Some people have switched the bp/moisturizer steps with success, but wait until you are clear to experiment.
