How To Stop Using Acne Medicine?
Hello, I want to ask that the doctor wishes to answer:) Since December 2018 I have tried one of the acne medicines sold in pharmacies, namely Mediklin TR. In every 1 gram of triklin gel contains trindamycin phosphate of 1.2% and tretinoin as much as 0.025%. I use according to the instructions which is only at night, but I buy without a doctor’s prescription. Until now, the effect that I felt was pimples and my actions improved and my skin became dry (not severe, only on the smeared part). During this time I only use Mediklin TR when there are pimples and stunts that are quite disturbing facial appearance. After it’s gone, I don’t use it anymore and return to using it when the zits reappear. But after I read it again on the internet I began to be afraid because I did not know the correct dose of using Mediklin TR for my acne. I am afraid that my acne bacteria will become invulnerable and need even tougher drugs. What I want to ask is how to stop using drugs like this without making my acne bacteria resistant ,? I hope the doctor will be pleased to answer because I really feel scared and confused. Thank you, 🙏🏻
