you should expect at least 1 week of treatment and leave it gradually until using gel solution also avoid sun exposure until pimple ends scaring

You are right in stopping the Epiduo until the redness subsides. I am not sure what "clear gel" might be, but I would apply a light, plain moisturizer over the red areas after cleansing the area with a mild cleanser
