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?

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

I have many acne, pimple. I used salicylic acid base face wash 2% and bengel proxide gel AC 2.5% at night..... Pless tell this combination really kil?

Monitor response: Salicylic acid based face wash and benzoyl peroxide are both routinely used in the management of acne. It can take 4-6 weeks to assess how the skin is responding to the treatment. If after 2 months of daily use this doesn't improve the acne, follow up with PCP to consider other treatment options. ...Read more

My skin is oily and fair, I got pimples at 16 but on 18 I used retino AC gel it worked but my skin color getting dark. Give tips to get fair skin.

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. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more

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

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

My metrodonizale gel says it expired on 5/17 its 11/17 can I still use it?

My metrodonizale gel says it expired on 5/17 its 11/17 can I still use it?

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

Is it bad to put oral gel on the wound because of the switches?

Is it bad to put oral gel on the wound because of the switches?

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
