Using Epiduo for acne. Redness and dryness. No pain or itching

I ve been using Epiduo for my acne , but when a patch on my jawline turned flaky, I used less and far away from the site. It was healing fine, then halfway through today the dry spot turned bright red and splotchy, kind of like a hickey. It doesn t hurt or itch , and nothing changed between when the spot was just dry and when it turned red.

Hi, it seems that due to use of epiduo due to excessive dryness it has led to irritation . I recommend you to stop the use of epiduo for few days and use of a non comedogenic moistoriser at that side. if it does not subside in 5 days add a mild steroid like desonide lotion and it will be fine. take care
