popped zit scab wound zit wound popped pimple tretinion initial breakout break out initial break out day 23
Initial Breakout Hell I am finishing up the first week of the initial breakout period. I have been doing my treatment for  23 days now.
I have to admit this week has been hard. I had a date this weekend so I use my olay peel 2 days in a row... BIG mistake. I ended up making my face raw! I had to slather my face in moisturizer and I couldn't use the tretinion for 2 days. In the last few days my face has continued to break out horribly. Its awful my cheeks and even up near the corner of my left eye is broken out. I continue to make it worse because I pick and pop.I know it doesn't help.Even as I am doing it I know its bad but I can't stop. So now in addition to my terrible zits my face  is full of these peely scab things. I  decided to not wear make up to work because I don't want to mess up my treatment. I can't even tell you how embarrassing it is. I took a picture just to show everyone just how bad it is right now.  Because of my scabs I changed up my treatment just a little.
I wash my face as soon as I get home from work. I wait a few minutes and then apply my tretinion. I have been putting  some neosporin on my scabs/ popped zit and putting on each one before I go to bed. I am hoping that this helps me get rid of these faster.




I feel you .. its really really hard to stop picking at the zits. The scabs are worse cuz they look horrible and are really embarassing . But hang in there and dont try to peel tge scab off. It will just make tgings worse .I speak from experience ! If ur face feels raw I suggest you try the honey mask . Just grab honey and slather it all over your face it feels great . I tried moisturising my face when it felt raw and all I ended up with was new zits the very next day

I would stop using the peel. The tretinoin is a serious exfoliater and you can actually cause your skin to break out from over exfoliating. Stop picking and touching your face! Everytime you go to pick just think about how it'll only make it worse. If your face is feeling chemically burned, give your skin a break for a day or two from the tretinoin.

I haven't used my peel in over a week. I am going to wait until my face is less sensative

Thanks I'l have to try this. Do I just use regular honey? How long do I leave it on before washing it off?
