  1. The Clinda is for the acne right? Because my acne has pretty much cleared up from some oral antibiotics I've been taking. The problem is that the wrinkles and dry patches are left over from severely drying out my skin with weeks of using duac gel. I remember back when I was using it, my skin was extremely dry compounded by the fact that I never used a moisturiser. Do you feel something like Retin A could help? Thanks
  2. Hi, An area of the right side of my face started to get really dry and slightly wrinkled shortly after I started using 'duac gel' for acne. At first, I thought it may be temporary but it's been over 9 months since I last used it and the wrinkles persist, along with the dryness to a lesser extent. I'm sure it was the benzoyl peroxide in the duac, as other people have reported the same problems in the use of BP. Nothing works. Moisturizers, oilve oil, nothing. I'm worried this may be permanent d

  4. Thanks, my doctor has given me a month's more supply and a referral to a dermatologist after. Not sure if I should take for another month...
  5. Hi, Started taking 250mg twice a day and after 2 weeks started to see slight improvements. By week 4, 90% of the acne was gone. By the end of week 4 I had finished the batch of pills. So it's been a week with no medication and my acne is creeping back. Did I come off the pills to early or is this normal that when you come off antibiotics the acne comes back? Thinking about going back on, but don't want to live my life on these pills. Any experiences?
  6. I had the same problem from the Bp. Havn't used it for over 6 months now, but the wrinkles it caused are mostly still present. Has anything helped so far?
  7. Thanks for the replies. Anyone else had any experience with this?
  8. An area of my face started to get really dry and slightly wrinkled shortly after i started using duac gel for acne. At first, i thought it may be temporary but it's been over 6 months since i last used it and the dryness and wrinkles persist. I am 21 so this should not be normal. I'm sure it was the benzoyl peroxide in the duac, as other people have reported the same problems in the use of BP. Nothing works. Moisturizers, oilve oil, nothing. I'm worried this may be permanent damage. Any help
  9. Hi, I have small but noticeable red areas on the sides of my face from when my skin used to be inflamed and itchy, which were made much worse by my constant scratching. The itching and scratching has sinced stopped, but the damage i was doing to my skin has remained. I'm wondering if there is anything i can do to reverse the damage and clear the marks that don't seem to be fading despite them being about 3 years old. Thanks for any help.
  10. Hi, it's been 6 months and still not much repair. I'm worried this could be permanent damage. I say it's Duac gel because the wrinkles/dryness came about right after i started using it. It is also on one side of my face. I should point out that i'm a 23 old male, so the wrinkles are definitely not natural. Any ideas/solutions appreciated.
  11. Hi, It's been 3 months since i stopped using Duac gel (Clindamycin phosphate; benzoyl peroxide).. but it's effects are still with me. This gel essentially dries the skin out, and it probably didn't help that i never used moisturizer while using it. A few days after last using the gel, i noticed a wrinkled area on one side of my face/cheek as well as extreme dryness, and white scaly patches. The wrinkles have improved 50%, but the area is extremely dry even when moisturizer is applied, which s
