Differin (Adapalene 0.1) And Antibiotics

1 post in this topic


Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Anyways, saw my term today as I have no seen much result with my antibiotics (doxy 100mg daily).

I went through a terrible initial breakout with my doxy..probably worst breakout of my life during week 4-8. It has slowly gotten better (now going on 3 months) but I would still classify it as moderate acne.

I was then prescribed adapalene cream 0.1% today. It's not differin, but same ingredients I'm assuming.

Anyways, will my initial breakout still be bad after experiencing the antibiotic IB?

Also, with sensitive skin should I start with the once daily, or skip a day or two in between to let my skin become less irritated?

Last question, should I continue with my finacea gel? will it interact with the adapalene at all?

Thanks for the support in advance!
