  • What Epiduo Gel is and what it is used for

    Epiduo Gel belongs to a group of medicines called "anti-acne preparation for topical use" i.e. it is used for the treatment of acne vulgaris, when comedones (blackheads, whiteheads), numerous papules and pustules (inflammatory pimples) are present. The gel combines two active ingredients, adapalene and benzoyl peroxide which work together but in different ways:
    • Adapalene belongs to a group of products known as retinoids and acts specifically on the skin processes that cause acne.
    • Benzoyl peroxide, works as an antimicrobial agent and by softening and peeling the outer layer of the skin.

    What Co-cyprindiol is what it is used for

    Co-cyprindiol contains an oestrogen and an anti-androgen. Co-cyprindiol is used to treat skin conditions such as acne, very oily skin and excessive hair growth in women of reproductive age. Due to its contraceptive properties, it should only be prescribed to you if your doctor considers that treatment with a hormonal contraceptive is appropriate. You should only take Co-cyprindiol if your skin condition has not improved after use of other anti-acne treatments, including topical treatments and antibiotics. Androgens are hormones that stimulate hair growth and the grease glands in your skin. If you produce too much androgen, or if you are sensitive to the effect, the grease glands may produce too much sebum. This can block the grease glands, which can become infected and inflamed causing acne spots. Co-cyprindiol stops the androgens affecting your skin and reduces the number of androgens produced.
