So I went to the Derm today because of some suspicious moles and basically we ended up talking about my face and the minor minor acne issue.

She prescribed me Ziana (clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%) Gel

Now I have been meaning to go onto Retin A for the many many benefits. So can I just use this? or should I get my own Retin A? Help Please!

sweet

thats what I was gonna do. I'll have to check out that website too


Unfortunetely, they prescribe like some foaming face and back wash. Which I'm not getting. They also wanted me to use their body lotion which they promoted there. lol idk I can get stuff like that at walgreen's or ulta

LNL got it right, the actual first tube has a topical antibiotic that will kill off bacteria and the retin-a (tretinoin) will pull out the underlying issues, turn the skin over faster, de-grease and keep it better, no need for the ongoing use of the antibacterial.
