Acne is a common condition 85% of people between the ages of 12-24. Recenltly solubilized benzoyl peroxide has been approved. Solubilization is process where the particles are smaller allowing for increased penetration, limiting visible clumps of product on the skin.
There are many acne gels and combinations on the markets. Acne gels have the distinct advantage of avoiding systemic effects that oral antibiotics can have. For example, taking oral antibiotics can create diarrhea, upset stomach, fungal infections, etc. The main issue with topical antibiotic gels is local irritation.
Some other topical antibiotic gels which are recently approved include a combination of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin and a newe combination of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene is a retinoid (dervived from Vitamin A) which is used for treating acne.
