Ryan I did break out at first with differin. The other thing my derm did was prescribe the differin
solution rather than the gel. Klaron is a new skin antibiotic which was approved by the FDA in
1997. I never used mosturizer while on differin. Today, I still use differin 2-3 times a week for
maitenance. It's the solution so it only takes 2 sec to apply. If you're starting to see results,
just keep on trucking.
Steve, did you break out at first with differin? i'm also on minocycline and differin, i've been on for 3 weeks, and i'm much better than i was last week. have any suggestions? how much differin did you apply, and did you use moisturizer? what is Klaron, by the way?
