Epiduo Gel is a type of medication that may be prescribed for people suffering from acne. It is a gel with two active ingredients that combine to reduce existing acne and eliminate the bacteria that cause it. Although acne is mostly associated with adolescents, it can occur at any time in your life.
How it works
Epiduo contains two active ingredients called adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene is a retinoid that works on the skin processes that cause acne. At the same time, benzoyl peroxide reduces white and blackheads, and kills the bacteria that cause acne.
What are the benefits of Epiduo?
Although there are no long term health risks associated with acne, it can impact on self esteem and therefore be a problem in day to day life. By using Epiduo, you can manage your acne and not have it affect your mood and life. It is also available as a cream.
How to use Epiduo Gel.
You should always follow your doctor’s recommendation on using Epiduo, and only use the following information as a guide. Epiduo should be used once a day, after washing and dabbing dry the skin at night. Apply a thin layer of Epiduo to the affected area and skin around it, not just individual spots. Wash your hands thoroughly after using Epiduo Gel.
Is Epiduo right for me?
The suitability of Epiduo will be assessed by your doctor as there are some medical conditions that mean it may not be right for you. You may not be prescribed Epiduo if you are allergic to adapalene, benzoyl peroxide or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information handbook. Do not use Epiduo on irritated skin or eczema. Speak to your doctor if you are taking any other medications as they may impact the effectiveness of Epiduo.
What are the side effects of Epiduo?
All medications have side effects but not everyone gets them. You can reduce the risk of side effects by informing your doctor of your full medical history and any other medications you are currently taking. Common side effects of Epiduo include dry, itchy or red skin.
