See a dermatologist: Differin (adapalene) or tretinoin will help you. Only about 10% of women your age respond to erythromycin, an antibiotic, which sometimes is difficult to take. Spironolactone is your best bet, with or without certain birth control pills. Some birth control hormones make acne worse because of androgenic (male hormone) effects. If you have severe nodular, cystic acne, isotretinoin will rescue you. ...Read more

I am using clindamycin gel with adapalene and orally azithromyc will it erase facial marks left out from acne? Or should I take up laser as a treatmen
Acne scars: Acne medications may help improve the red or dark marks left by acne spots. They don't do anything for skin texture changes due to scarring. If your acne is still ongoing, laser treatment of scars may actually cause more breakouts. Also squeezing or scratching acne spots can lead to more hyperpigmentation of the skin. There are acne meds like Azelaic Acid gel that may help lighten dark spots, too. ...Read more
Can erythromycin topical 2% and retin-a micro be used in the same day? Say one in the am and one in the pm for acne?
You certainly can use this combination. Erythromycin in the am and retina-a micro at night would be the best plan.
However, I rarely use erythromycin. Its just not that effective for most people. Clindamycin doesn't cost any more, and is usually much more effective, especially when it is combined with a small amount of benzoyl peroxide. ...Read more
I use erythromycin 1.5% topical sol&cliniderm &differine for acnes. Could they help to get rid of blackheads also pr I need another medicine with mine?
Acne scars: It is unlikely that your skin will be clear but it can be improved. Treatment must be based on addressing the active disease (usually with oral retinoids and/or systemic or topical antibiotics and skin care regimen) and then using other methods to address the established scars. This can include peels, lasers, dermabrasion, surgery, grafts, fillers, grafts, etc. ...Read more
Can I use adapalene and benzoyl peroxide gel alternatively for acne treatment? Like adapalene before bed time and benzoyl peroxide in morning?
This is a good combination treatment. The two medications work in different ways and therefore help
each other out. The Adapalene can make you more sensitive to the sun. Be careful in the sun. The benzoyl
peroxide can be drying especially in the winter, so a mild moisturizer such as aveeno (oatmeal). You are on minocycline. It can cause grayish pigmentation of the skin/ gums. Not reversible. Rare. ...Read more
Adapalene: Apply a small amount at bedtime to entire area of acne. Not eyelids or lips OK to skip some nights if irritation. Do you have. 1%? . 3%? With prolonged use it is better tolerated and more effective. Clindamycin may be a waste of money. Benzoyl peroxide OTC is cheaper and more effective. Use a tiny amount in AM. OK to use moisturizer if dry skin. Keep off colored fabrics: will bleach colors.. ...Read more
Two different meds: Differen is a lower strength retinoid comparable to retin a (tretinoin) that may decrease oil gland activity among many other effects. Dalacin t is a topical antibiotic containing Clindamycin and similar to the older Cleocin t. Both can actually be used for acne breakouts, if prescribed and supervised by a qualified physician. ...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

What is the recommended length of time for using differin (adapalene) 0.1% gel to clear up acne scars?
3-4 months: If you were prescribed differin, (adapalene) your scars aren't very bad. Differin (adapalene) is good for very mild acne and it produces less photosensitivity than other retinoids. In general it takes most retinoids 3-4 months to peel the skin enough to remove the discoloration from superficial acne scars and rebuild collagen. Should use spf of >30 in daytime all year long to keep those scars from darkening or reappearin. ...Read more
