Question: Using Duac topical acne treatment with contacts

 wowcool - Wed Jan 02, 2008 4:20 pm

Not at all a serious question but I would like to know if the topical acne treatment Duac can be used in conjunction with my contact lenses and my optician does not know of it and therefore will not allow me to have contact lenses. Thank you

User avatar Hello,
Product information does not show any contraindication for using contact lenses with Duac for acne. I would not worry about it.

Best wishes.
