Should I continue using benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) and stievamycin?

Zit care. Stievamycin is tretinoin & erythromycin gel for topical treatment for acne. Benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) is also topical antibiotic & scrubbing agent for zits. Ask your doctor before you change medicine instruction. Your doctor would stop one gel to begin another gel. Use care for washing your hands and avoiding eyes, etc.

Acne isn't itchy. I suspect the itch is related to medication. Acne itself is generally not itchy. Popping pimples likely won't help you feel better, and will often impair healing.
