      Hi all

      I've had a good few weeks now of manageable tinnitus.

      However in this past 7 days I've been applying Acnecide [benzoyl peroxide 5%] or Epiduo [adapalene 0.1% & benzoyl peroxide 2.5%] at the back of my neck along the hairline for some spots that appeared and my tinnitus has increased again.

      I'm also using Hydrocortisone 1% on one of my shins where I've had a purple rash now for months [GP said is dermatitis].

      Anyone know if these creams are ototoxic?

      Did you ever find out if these creams were causing a change? I am going to start using Adapalene myself.
