I have been on duac gel (Benzoyle Peroxide 5%, clindamycin 1%) for a month now and it has cleared up my skin a lot, but it is so extreamly dry and really flaky now... and its getting worse every day.. I can't even control the dryness with jojoba oil and aloe anymore... but my face is pretty clear.... so i have a dilemma.
I have a derm appt. on wenesday and I am wondering if I should ask for just plain clindamycin, b/c I read the BP is for oilyness, and I wasn't real oily to begin with!! So maybe it's the clindamycin working thats clearing my acne?? And the BP is drying the crap out of my skin? I really can't stand this dryness anymore
... any suggestions I can bring to the derm with me??
Thanks so much guys! I love this board!
