Is Duac an oral or topical antibiotic?

I wonder if its available in Ireland.

Duac should be available in Ireland, as typically, antibiotics are released in Europe before being released in the US.

It is a topical antibiotic, and it was just approved and released recently by the FDA.

Since it has been available, it has proven to be a very effective treatment, especially when used in combination with other treatments, such as retinoids.

Ask your derm about it.

Take care, az

I just started using duac gel and so far I don't have any complaints. I am really against putting anything on my face but after reading some posts and asking questions about duac I decided that it would be in my best interest to just give it a go. I am really suprised at how mild it is. I have been using it for 3 or 4 days and I haven't gotten any redness or peeling (knock on wood). I also like it because when I put it on my pimples it somehow makes them not look so red, like they look more skin color. Overall, I really like the duac so far but I guess I will have to give it some time to see if it really helps me out.
