Hi.
Epiduo is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and adapalene. It may cause dryness or irritation when used on sensitive skin. You may prefer to use a product which contains just adapalene called Differin. Differin comes in a 0.1% gel and a 0.3% gel aswell as a 0.1% cream for sensitive skin.
When using topical acne meds use a bland cleanser such as Cetaphil, La Roche-Posay or Vichy to minimise dryness and irritation.
I notice you are 47, have you struggled with acne for a long time? Have you also tried oral antibiotics (doxycycline/minocycline etc?) If long term oral antibiotics and topical retinoids have resulted in failure or relapse, you may be a candidate for oral Isotretinoin (formerly Accutane). This is the strongest acne medication available. It virtually always results in total or excellent skin clearance after just one course lasting 16-24 weeks.
My apologies, in your other post you did not say it was you who suffered with acne, and I asked if you were enquiring for a child.
Best Wishes and welcome to the forum,
Eloise.
