Acne: Both can be effective, although through different actions. Benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) is more effective with acne causing bacteria. Differing is a retinoid. Uses in conjunction, they can be very effective. But, it's all trial and error.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
