Benzoyl Peroxide and Topical Retinoids
In the past, it has been difficult to create a stable combination topical medicine that contained both a retinoid and benzoyl peroxide. Epiduo is a once a day topical acne prescription medicine that contains both ingredients and is well tolerated in most patients. Some patients cannot tolerate the irritability of both a topical retinoid and benzoyl peroxide.
