About 6 months ago i was prescribed Duac gel (Clindamycin phosphate; benzoyl peroxide) to deal with some inflamation. It seems it wasn't without long lasting side effects.
This gel essentially dries the skin out, and it probably didn't help that i never used moisturizer while using it. A few days after last using the gel, i noticed a wrinkled area on one side of my face/cheek as well as extreme dryness, with white scaly patches.
Half a year later and the wrinkles have somewhat improved but are still here, and the area is extremely dry even when moisturizer is applied, which seems to work for half a day, before the dryness apears again. i'm talking extreme dryness.
Could i have caused some permanent damage to my skin? Nothing seems to be working.
Any help appreciated.
