Epiduo 0.1%/2.5% Gel reviews
Epiduo gel is a dual-action acne treatment that contains adapalene 0.1% and benzoyl peroxide 2.5%. When combined in Epiduo gel, these two ingredients help to kill the bacteria that cause acne as well as helping to increase the turnover of keratin skin cells that can build up and block pores.
In adults and children 18 years and over, Epiduo is applied once daily, usually in the evening. You should not apply Epiduo more than once in a 24-hour period. For best effects, Epiduo gel should be applied after washing your face with warm water and a mild cleanser to clear away and excess oil, skin cells and bacteria.
You can combine Epiduo with antibiotic acne treatments such as Tetralysal (lymecycline), Oxytetracycline, Minocin (minocycline) or Erythromycin tablets. Epiduo should not be used with any other acne creams as it may cause excess drying or irritation to your skin.
Redness and irritation of the treated area can occur when you use Epiduo for the first time. This is not usually serious and normally subsides within a week. During this time reduce the frequency of Epiduo application to once every other day to allow your skin to recover and then slowly build up to applying it daily.
Epiduo Gel is an prescription-only acne treatment. For that reason, to ensure the safety of our patients and the legal & ethical operating of our pharmacy, we only supply a maximum of 3 months treatment at one time. Epiduo treatment is normally judged for effectiveness after 2-3 months. This means that if you do not find Epiduo as effective as you would like after this time, you are not stuck with an excess of medication. If you are happy with the results you can easily log in and re-order another supply.
