Skin dry,dark and red after using adapalene and benzoyl peroxide combo cream for acne all over face, but it has effects,any suggestions for skin dark?
I was recently prescribed topical betamethasone val (0.1%)(bid) and differin (adapalene) gel (o.d) for my facial acne. Is this a good combination to control acne
Not typical: A topical steroid ( betamethasone ) is not typical medication used for acne ( but it can be used). The usual medication choices are benzoyl peroxide, retinoids and antibiotics. Of course, your physician may have a very good reason to have you on the steroid. If you have a question about the choice, you should speak with your physician. ...Read more

I've been using a retinol cream for acne for about a month and its made acne worse. Is retinol bad for acne but retinoic acid good for acne?
Depends: Retinoic acid is good for an acne ( but it used in more severe cases). Sometimes just cleansing the skin with peroxide and antibiotic ointment afterwards can do the trick in not complicated cases or it can be added to your current medication in more severe cases. Check with your doc or consult a dermatologist. If your are a female, get an oral contraception (pills). ...Read more
My doctor has prescribed me salicylic acid gel cleanser and differin (adapalene) for my acne marks, do you think it's effective for acne marks?
Depends: This depends on the severity of the scars/marks. It is a good regimen for preventing new acne scars, but ones that are already present pose a different problem. If you have deep pits and scars from previous cystic lesions, even the salicylic acid may not be enough to remove these. You may want to work with a dermatologist or even a plastic surgeon if you have significant scarring. ...Read more

Hi doctor. i have acne scars on my face, some severe and some moderate. i am using adapalene and clindamycin phosphate gel and benzoyl peroxide as fac?
Can i combine tretinoin, benzoyl peroxide and topical erythromycin for adult acne? If yes, in what sequence?
Yes but drying.: I would try benzoyl peroxide followed by retin a (tretinoin) then Erythromycin but you could switch the order of the latter two. Of course other physicians may recommend other regimens. Your skin will likely become quite dry and may benefit from gentle exfoliation first and the use of non comedogenic moisturizers in the am with sunscreen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
