Answered by Peggie Auman 4 months ago.

Adapalene is only available as a prescription. ...Although, you can get it in an unlawful way, which is oversea online pharmacy. You've been warned. You have to be extra careful. You need to use a new email address because once you purchase with such sites, you'll inbox will be spammed with ... spam. You'll also want to make a separate credit card account just in case some dishonest merchant tries to cheat you. So, put in only enough to purchase enough.The shipping charges is egregious, but the product is cheap. One last thing. There's no gaurantee that generic brands overseas are as effective, or worse, pure. Okay, I know I've made it sound so scary, but this is to give you reality that some/many people have experienced. Personally, nothing happened with my money albeit I still made a separate account. I bought 5 A-Ret and 5 Tazorac generic tubes. I have faith they are as effective and pure. I have used 4 tubes so far. Look, if you really want to go this route, just be care ful. Google "All Day Chemist". I think it's best if you just buy a retinol product at the drugstore like from RoC or Neutrogena. It's not as strong as adapalene, but it's still vitamin A.

Does adapalene or Differin work well on dried skin? Is it like ProActiv where it work better only oily skin because what it actually does is that it dries up the skin, therefore killing the bacteria. My doctor prescribed me adapalene a few months ago. Used it, after a week, areas around the right side my mouth and some around my nose was starting to dry up, similar to after getting sunburnt (flaking up), so then I started rubbing it, so the "dead skin", I suppose can get off, then it got worse, my skin was red. I had to apply lotion literally every five minutes. And it happened during my dance competition. Oh the joy. -_- I want to give it a try again because I really want my acne to clear up. Should I give it a try? Or stop cuz I got all dried up and flaky after using it? As you can see I have dried skin, what acne product should I use that can be most effective? Thank you! Answered by Nicholle Jaquish 4 months ago.

The adapalene is different from the proactive. You should retry it. It can cause dryness, but it doesn't have to. When you reapply it start with 1 hour the first night and then wash it off. Apply sparingly and no scrubbing. The next night apply for 2 hours and wash off. Reapply each night and add an hour every night or two. This will allow your skin to get used to the drying effect and build tolerance to it. The goal is all night every night. Answered by Marla Mizukami 4 months ago.


Adapalene microspheres clindamycin phosphate gel usage?
i just bought myself a tube of adapalene microspheres clindamycin phosphate gel to cure my pimples. i dont have many. just 2 -3 odd ones. is this cream supposed to be left overnight or for sometime only. how do i use it? Asked by Damion Aronson 4 months ago.

Your question is confusing because these are two separate medications and it doesnt even sound like you should be using them. You're supposed to be using them under the direction of a dermatologist. FYI, they will make you breakout worse--possibly for months--before it gets better (so if you dont have really have acne you are risking giving yourself more). Anyways, generally, you're supposed to apply a very thin layer of the the adapalene gel to the areas you usually breakout 20 minutes after you've washed your face every night, then about five minutes later you're supposed to apply the clindamycin and go to bed. You're supposed to wash your face in the AM as usual. Usually the clindamycin is used in the AM too but like i said, you don't even sound like you should be using either of these... They are NOT SPOT TREATMENTS, so simply applying them to individual zits like that will do nothing for you. The acne that's already on your face is basically a lost cause at this point; these medications are only for preventing NEW zits and that can take at least 28 days due to the fact that that's how long the typical skin cycle is.

Adapalene And Clindamycin Answered by Keely Weppler 4 months ago.

I've used both before, and i found benzyol peroxide gel worked better for me. I didn't seen an improvment with the other and it irritated my skin a little. I did however yield results after a few weeks, but benzoyl peroxide worked much faster and didn't irritate my skin as much. Answered by Consuelo Lockner 4 months ago.

I went to the dermatologist a week and a half ago. He put my on this OTC gentle face cleanser which I love, and also adapalene gel. That's all it says on the tube (0.3% adapalene). I have VERRRRRY sensitive skin, I always have. I used it for four days without problems and then when I woke up on the fifth day my face was burning, it was really itchy and blotchy and tight and gross. I took a shower and I couldn't even wipe the water off my face without it burning really, really badly. Should I talk to my dermatologist? I can't put anything on my face, including the suggested lotion and moisturizer. I look like I have some skin disease. :/ I've read it can have some pretty intense reactions but this is miserable! Answered by Omer Greth 4 months ago.

Vaseline or hydrocortisone for the next few days to a week to quiet the irritation of the adapalene. Avoid sunscreen moisturizers for now as they will sting. Always appropriate to call the dr who prescribed a medication. When the irritation is gone and you want to restart the adapalene, go slow. Put it n for 10 min the first night and wash off. Leave it on 20 min the next night and wash off. Continue in that way, increasing the time left on each night until you can tolerate it 6-8 hours. After the first week or so you can probably go up a little faster. Many can tolerate an hour at a time increase. The goal is all night every night. just takes some time to get there.

Okay I know there are a lot of posts on here about this acne gel, but my issue is this: I have sensitive, red, combination skin with embedded blackheads and often excessive sebum/oily forehead. My dr gave me Adapalene (Differin) 0.1 gel to apply nightly. I'm a week in and my skin has started flaking. In the morning and throughout the day I cleanse (Aquanil) and when I moisturize my skin feels like its on fire! Even use a natural moisturizer for dry/sensitive skin and natural sunscreen and it stung so badly, I had to rinse it all off. Even Aveeno Ultra-Calming moisturizer w/ spf for sensitive skin (previous uses prior to the Differin made my skin very oily) made my skin burn. Applying the Differin/Adapalene does not sting or burn, just moisturizers and sunscreens applied after it and throughout the day. Is this a chemical reaction? sensitivity to the ingredients? normal process for the treatment? Should I stop using it or continue using it? I know it takes a while for the skin to get better with use. Thanks! Answered by Pansy Whitehall 4 months ago.

This is likely irritation caused by the adapalene. It could get better with use, but takes a while. Instead stop it for a few days to a week and let the irritation settle down. Then restart by putting on one hour the first night and washing back off. The next day leave on 2 hours and wash off. The next day 3 hours and so on until you work up to 6-8 hours. Then you can put it on at bedtime. Go slower if you get irritated again. Apply sparingly. Moisturize aggressively. Answered by Reena Clingan 4 months ago.


Adapalene gel work for scaring?
i was just prescribe adapalene gel for my acne... so far i heard some good reviews on it and am excited to start! but i want to know if you used this personally, DOES THE ACNE SCARING FADE?? also if u usedcephalexin did that work i'm using that too! please and thank you Asked by Amparo Aragoni 4 months ago.

The only research available for adapalene is its effectiveness on acne, not acne scars. It can probably promote collage production that can smooth out certain atrophic scars, but it cannot remove them. No, I have never used cephalexin. Answered by Giovanni Vandenbrink 4 months ago.
