Retino AC gel vs ziana? What is the difference between the two? Is one generic and original is there any difference in quality or effectiveness?
Acne Vulgaris: The difference is that ziana contains tretinoin and clindamycin. Retin-a gel is brand name for tretinoin only and has no antibiotic Clindamycin in it. Like to think that combination is more effective but actually it depends on whether you have more inflammation than nodularity. You use Renova cream as well. It is also tretinoin. Light therapy helps in acne. Wish you good health. ...Read more
The medication: Can cause the redness. Talk with your doctor about potential changes in your therapy. ...Read more

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well.

I have acne and red spot on my face...I am going to use benzac (benzoyl peroxide) AC gel for treating it. So it is good choice or not? Plz suggest
A good first try: Benzac ac (http://www. Benzac. Com. Au/why-it-works) is basically benzoyl peroxide with an added combo of absorbing beads and glycerin all act to dry up a lot of the oils that can clog up skin pores, causing an acne lesion. Without seeing you I cannot say if it will work but it may be a good start. See a dermatologist if this doesn't help. ...Read more
Probably OK, but...: Drug expiration dates are very conservative. Drugs are not necessarily less effective or have increased risk of side effects after the expiration date. It's just that they haven't been tested beyond that date. But unless stored unsafely (e.g. an especially hot area, like in a car on hot days), they usually are fine. However, for a new infection, best not to self treat. See a doctor to confirm. ...Read more

Simple Care: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
