I'm using Differen and I never had/have blackheads. I still break out but I guess my face would look worse if I didn't use the Differen. Are you on any other medications?

Re: HELP???NEED ADVICE??/Differin question>

OK I just came across one of your messages and read that your also on Minocycline. I am also taking Minocycline & Differen. I think the antibiotic is what helps the most but I'm afraid to take it because I don't want to become immune to it but it is a good combo.

Re: HELP???NEED ADVICE??/Differin question>

I have been using Differen for about 8 months and I used the Minocycline for 3-4 months and went off because my face was completely clear!I have what my derm calls very mild acne but last summer it was mild/moderate bc of RETIN A MICRO-it made my face look horrible! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/mad.gif"> The Minocycline worked wonders for me. Well...since it was soooo clear I decided to stop taking the Minocycline and now I'm having a little breakout and I did stop taking the Minocycline without my Derms permission(he wasn't very happy about that)I just started taking it again about a week ago. I'm kind of on and off with it.

Re: HELP???NEED ADVICE??/Differin question>

Sure..

Differin is much more effective for
non-imflammatory breakouts, due to its
nature. It has no anti-inflammatory
properties, it simply prevents plugs (non-
imflammatory breakouts) from forming..

If you have inflammatory acne, you should
tag-team Differin with a bacteriacidal
partner, such as Benzamycin, BP, Cleocin-T,
etc. so that you're not only preventing
new breakouts from forming, but you're
killing the bacteria as well..

Clinically, Differin is the most effective
topical med (although I don't know the
efficacy stats of Benzamycin), so as long
as your acne isn't severe, Differin should
do you a lot of good..
