Is it required to switch to another facewash for sensitive skin?

Hi,I got prescribed Epiduo along with Lymecycline against my acne. The dermatologist did not recommend any face washes, and I am currently using Mene and Moy s cleanser for sensitive skin. It contains 4% glycolic acid. I read that glycolic acid should not be used together with Epiduo, so I was wondering if I should switch to another face wash and if so, which one? I have very sensitive skin and get mostly hormonal acne, and had some cystic acne a few years ago. Thank you!Sofia

Hi.
As per your query of sensitive skin, my treatment advice is -
1. It is better to avoid glycolic acid face wash.
2. Use a simple tea tree oil face wash like gorgeous face wash.
3. Avoid sun exposure and use a good sunscreen lotion with spf more than 30.

Thanks.
