Epiduo (Adapalene + Benzoyl Peroxide) Gel
Epiduo Gel Description:
Epiduo 0.1% / 2.5% gel is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene and Benzoyl Peroxide, which treats acne (pimples). Adapalene is a form of Vitamin A and Benzoyl Peroxide is a keratolytic drug. Together they prevent the build-up of sebum (the skin's natural oil), unblock the pores and allow the outer layers of the skin to be naturally exfoliated. Benzoyl Peroxide also penetrates the skin and kills bacteria that cause acne.
Epiduo Gel helps treat acne by reducing the production of excessive oil in the skin. This will help keep your pores open and prevent further acne breakouts. It helps reduce redness and swelling around acne and promotes healing. It also helps reduce acne blemishes and gives you smoother looking skin.
Skin peeling, skin irritation, dry skin, burning sensation at the application site, erythema (reddening of the skin)
This medicine is intended for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration recommended by your doctor. Check the label for instructions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying unless hands are the affected area.
Instructions for Use:
Epiduo Gel should be gently applied to the acne-affected skin area once a day in the evening, preferably at bedtime. The skin should be cleaned and dried before use. Wash hands before and after application.
Only a thin layer is required for the treatment to be effective. Using more won't produce better results, but it can increase the likelihood of side effects. The gel should be applied with fingertips. Avoid rubbing the whole palm of your hand as this can make the skin more abrasive. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.
How is Epiduo Gel different?
Epiduo Gel is the only antibiotic-free topical acne treatment with a fixed dose combination of 0.1% adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. It comes in a convenient pump and will help clear the breakouts you're having now and prevent future breakouts from forming. The two medicines have been shown to work better together than alone. Having them together in a single treatment may mean fewer co-payments, more convenience, and most importantly, better results.
Who Can Use Epiduo Gel?
If you are 9 years old or older and your acne does not improve according to your current routine, Epiduo Gel is for you. But of course, you should always ask a medical expert. Ask your doctor (and parents if you are 17 or younger) if Epiduo Gel is right for you.
Does it matter when I use Epiduo Gel?
No, you can use it in the morning or evening, or as directed by your doctor. It is better to use it every day at the same time, so as not to be distracted from the routine. It is important not to skip days so that Epiduo Gel can continue to work.
How much Epiduo Gel should be used?
Follow your doctor's instructions, but usually a pea-sized amount evenly distributed over each affected area of the face is ideal. Using more will not speed up the process, and is not the best option for pinpoint processing. Stick to the correct amount and stay consistent.
What if I forget to use Epiduo Gel?
Skipping a day of treatment can lead to the formation of new pimples under the skin's surface. Therefore, try to make Epiduo Gel a part of your daily routine. If you miss a day, just start the next day with the same pea-sized amount you always apply to each affected area of your face and you'll be back on track.
Can I stay in the sun while using Epiduo Gel?
If you need to get out in the sun, always use a sunscreen that won't clog your pores (the packaging may say “non-comedogenic”) and wear protective clothing over the treated area. Also avoid exposure to sunlight.
