Epiduo Gel is a topical treatment used to treat mild to moderate acne. This gel is a combination of two different medications, adapalene, and benzoyl peroxide. This treatment is suitable for use by tweens, teens, and adults who experience acne as it can treat inflammatory acne and comedonal acne. At this time, Epiduo Gel is only available through a prescription.
How it Works
This gel works to treat acne in several different ways due to its ingredients. Adapalene causes your skin to shed more effectively, helping dead skin cells fall off to keep your pores clear. Benzoyl peroxide then fights the bacteria responsible for the breakouts. This gel will also reduce inflammation, so you can kiss those red, inflamed pimples goodbye!
As with any medication, there are some side-effects of Epiduo that you should be aware of:
Side-effects of Epiduo are usually the worst during the first few weeks of using the treatment and will subside as your skin adjusts to the medication. Be sure to inform your doctor if any side-effects persist or are severe.
