Overview

NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you.

Epiduo is a gel treatment for moderate to severe acne and it contains two active ingredients: adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene is classed as a third generation retinoid (a form of vitamin). It works to reduce inflammation and blackhead/whitehead formation by reducing the growth of the keratin surface skin cells that can block pores. Benzoyl peroxide is an antibacterial as well as a keratolytic (peeling) agent. These ingredients work in conjunction to reduce the symptoms of acne.

Side Effects

  • itching
  • dryness
  • a warm/stinging sensation
  • scaling
  • redness or a skin rash

However, this is usually just for the first couple of weeks of use and symptoms will start to settle with continued use. If the initial side effects are too uncomfortable, wash your skin and apply non-spot forming cream to relieve the symptoms. If any side effects get worse, please consult your doctor.
