What Is Duac Gel and What Does it Do?

Duac Gel is a topical gel used to treat acne, including blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, and papules. It achieves this via its active ingredient clindamycin, an antibiotic that kills bacteria at the root of the problem. Another active ingredient — benzoyl peroxide — acts as a peeling agent to remove any bacteria trapped beneath the surface layer, as helping to reduce inflammation associated with acne.

Duac Gel Reviews

It's always important seek advice from a medical professional when seeking treatment. Professionals have the knowledge and experience required to give you a comprehensive picture of what to expect from treatment. However, firsthand reviews and experiences from users can help you to gain an insight on what to expect.

Comparing Duac reviews to your own situation is a great way to understand more about what to expect. Reviews published on Chemist Click are transparent and non-biased, coming from a third-party review platform, Trustpilot.


Duac Topical Gel vs Epiduo

Studies have found that Epiduo Gel, another acne treatment, causes water loss from the skin through evaporation, resulting in dryness. Study participants using Duac Gel, in contrast, found that skin dryness and related complaints were significantly reduced. In addition, sensations of mild skin discomfort or stinging were found to be far less likely among users of Duac Topical Gel vs Epiduo. Duac, however, contains an antibiotic which can only be used for a short time. This is to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance, in other words, to prevent your skin from becoming resistant to Duac. It is common for Epiduo to be used as a follow-on treatment after a course of Duac.


Duac Gel Cost

Duac prices start from around £25 for a tube. Depending on the area you are using Duac, one tube can last for 1-3 months.
