    Information about Dalacin T and Tube of Differin 1% Gel

    Hi, i have very oily skin with lots of blackheads and loads of small spots. I am currently using retin-a at night and was wondering what i should use during the day. Has anyone used Dalacin T (also known as CLEOCIN T) or Differin Gel 0.1% if so where they any good.
    thanks

    I have cleocin T and I could see a difference over night (even the cysts got a lot smaller after just one night! and normally I had them for 6 months!). I swear! But I stopped cause all the meds gave me earaches and I'm thinking of starting that again. I hope my earaches were from something else. Does anyone know if clindamycin is ototoxic?

    Tommy, neither of your other "choices"
    would be appropriate during the day. Both
    Differin and Cleocin-T need to be applied
    at bedtime, otherwise they will have
    adverse reactions from the daily sun..

    Actually my derm told me to use twice a day <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> So you can use it during the day.

    i have also been using cleocin t twice daily, once in the morning and at night and it is fine to use during the day. trust me i have sensitive skin and using it in the morning does not cause it to get red or anything like that. oh yea ive been using this stuff for about 1 1/2 years now <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> and i love it! finally with the help of b5 ive been seeing positive improvements in my skin, everyone is noticing and its definetly helping out my self esteem <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> good luck to all
