Epiduo is an effective topical ointment used for treating acne, as reported by WebMD. Epiduo contains a combination of different chemicals like adapalene, which is a retinoid, and benzoyl peroxide, which is an antibiotic and also an agent that causes skin peeling. Epiduo not only decreases the severity of acne, but also promotes rapid healing.
Before applying Epiduo, remember to wash your hands, and to wash the area where the ointment is to be applied. Wash off any residual cosmetic, oil and dirt or debris that may have accumulated on the skin, so that the ointment can be effectively absorbed. Apply Epiduo sparingly.
