tretinoin, retin-a, retin a and 2 more...
I've been using retin-a 0.05% until 6 weeks ago, but nothing has changed. Still a lot of red marks (that is the most important problem to solve, because I have 90% red marks) and still some occasional pimples.
I'm not using Benzoyl peroxide 5% anymore (it's the second weeks that I don't use it) because maybe it could prolong red marks. I still use Benzoyl...

Ok, the last two weeks I had a little little worsening of the situation, with a lot and big new pimples but now the situation is returned as before. Now I decided to stop using Benzoyl peroxide for a while, to see if my red marks disappear without its use (because I have heard that benzoyl peroxide could prolong red marks.. and maybe it's right)

I will b...

I think that this week I had a little breakout ,maybe caused by Retin-A.. it IS NOT like the initial breakout that I have had with topical isotretinoin in December\January.. (I have had 4\5 very big-new pimples ).
However, exept these pimples, the situation is still the same.. Red marks are still here (maybe two or three are disappearing) .. I have no mor...


First Week Tretinoin ( Like Retin-A) + Benzoyl Peroxide 5%

This week I started to use Tretinoina Same 0.05% (like retin-a) and benzoyl peroxide 5%. For the moment I'm happy for this regimen, it's not too irritant (I had only dry skin for the first 3 days) and I have few breakouts (as ever).
This cream is better than Isotrex (topical isotretinoin 0.05%) that was too irritant for me. Benzolait 5 (Benzoyl peroxide 5...

I have been using Isotrex (topical isotretinoin) for 3 months (12 weeks) in the night and benzoyl peroxide 10% in the morning.. I had NO IMPROVEMENTS. I had an initial breakout that was TERRIBLE and even if it's gone, it has only worsened my acne. Now I have no inflamed pimples (but even without isotrex I had few inflamed pimples) but I still have a lot o...

Posted by Raf97, 13 February 2014 · 59 views

The situation is the same, very red marks are still here, occasionally new pimples break out.  General redness is less and there isn't dryness anymore. Until this week, I'm using again isotrex (topical isotretinoin) every night and benzoyl peroxide 10% every morning. I'm using a new cleanser with Benzoyl Peroxide 1% in the morning and in the night (B...

So, there are some news.
In accord to what my doctor said, I'm using topical isotretinoin and benzoyl peroxide on alternate nights (one night isotrex, the next one benzoyl peroxide). On February 10 I have a visit with my doctor.. I CAN'T WAIT.
The situation is the same, some days I have new pimples and the redness is a little bit less, but it's here.
Red...

Every day is a battle. Every day there is a new pimple, every day my skin is dry , every day my skin is worse.
I'm thinking to stop Isotrex (topical isotretinoin) and to continue only with Benzolait 10 (Benzoyl peroxide 10%) and at least to take a topical antibiotic like erythromycin.. But I want to see a doctor (I will change my actual doctor) to not do...

So, I've been using Topical Isotretinoin (Isotrex gel 0,05%) and Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (Benzoilat 10 Emulgel)
Things ARE NOT better. I'm still worse than before the use of isotrex (I have been using benzoyl peroxide since 1 year ago, so it was isotrex that gave me this breakout) SO I HAVE NOT IMPROVEMENT.
(I remember you that I use isotrex in the night and...

I'm disappointed. I don't know what I should do to defeat acne. It's the 7th week of Isotrex (topical isotretinoin ) in combination to Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (that I use in the morning).. I have been fighting with acne since September 2012. Now I'm annoyed.
I still have breakouts , I still have red marks and red inflamed pimples and now breakouts are just h...
