My last entry was in May 2008, and I continued to use Duac until the summer of 2009. Then I stopped for a while because I thought my acne was fading away and I didn't need treatment anymore.
I was wrong. My acne came back in 3-4 months, and strong as ever. My cystic pimples came back, huge, painful, even if there were only 2-3 on my face at a time.
So I went back on Duac in September and it was difficult to wait for Duac to kick in. It took a good couple of months because I kept picking at my skin, or neglecting Duac in my busy schedule. Now that it's December, I'm finally clear again. I'm much better at stopping myself from picking.
Recently, to save money on Duac (it's a little cheaper with Next RX, $30 a pack but I'm losing my healthcare so I have some stocked up).....I've been using Daniel Kern's Acne Treatment (just the gel) at night before bed. In the morning I use Duac.
The main reason why I decided to write another blog is this: I hear too many stories of people still suffering with acne. I'm 23 now, and trust me, I've had enough. I've had acne since I was 11.
To all of you still suffering: Try Duac gel. Or any other topical cream with benzoyl peroxide AND clindamycin. Daniel Kern's regimen comes with benzoyl peroxide only, if you have mild acne that may be enough. For moderate acne, you need clindamycin. I'm not an expert when it comes to severe acne, but try something with clindamycin anyway.
Best of luck to you all, and Happy New Year
