It's just annoying, that's all. Really annoying. Bad? It just means the oil glands are hyperactive. And that only means a higher chance of acne.

clyndimycin is an anti-biotic I believe. And differin is a newer retinoid. If oilyness is ever an issue, perhaps ask to go on tretinoin. The topical stuff. For acne it isn't as good, but it'll be better for clearing up the oil.

And remember to use cetaphil morning and night. No more, or it'll aggrevate the skin.

Good luck!
