Should I Stop To Use Everything? 6 Weeks Retin-A 0.05%

tretinoin retin-a retin a benzoyl peroxide triacneal
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 peroxide 1% cleanser to wash my face the morning and the night.
I apply the moisturizer once a day (bioderma's sebium hydra).
I'm asking myself : should I stop to use everything? I mean.. I've tried Benzoyl peroxide,tretinoin,topical isotretinoin, topical antiobiotic, a cream with aha, glycolic acid (avene's triacneal)..
So, NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
Should I stop to use everything?




See a dermatologist and get on an antibiotic for a few years. Then you can relax. My daughter visited Rome last year and it was amazing. The art from the Roman Classical period changed my view on what human beings are capable of. I now believe that we are great and wondrous beings. Before my attitude was more bad. The Coffee from Rome was the best coffee I have ever had and the pistachio cookies were beautiful. Everything was amazing. It must be nice to live in a country with real art and real culture, so unlike the land of McDonalds that I grew up in. I have yet to visit Rome but I have a long life ahead of me so who knows where I may go! Ciao! P.S. You are the same age as my daughter...

You know, we are really proud to live in this country, it's the homeland of the culture  and the homeland of the most important intellectual people.. we have a lot of wonderful places and it's all so beautiful. But don't believe that there aren't negative aspects. You know, there is this decay of values of some people that ruines all the beautiful things of this country and this thing leads us to leave Italy because we feel cheated by these powerful people.. And it's not true, even Usa has really beautiful and amazing things.. and what you think about Italy, I think about America. Isn't is strange?

Ciao ! :)

lol it is strange. The Italian art that I saw changed my whole being...I guess I am repeating myself but I feel like Italy has produced many geniuses. Here in America we get fat and watch sitcoms with laugh tracks. I will always admire Italian culture. There is no way I can say that America is better than Italy. Impossible. I made some Italian friends here in the U.S. Lorenzo and Pino. Lorenzo was my first white guy kiss!   He was so handsome and he even rode a motorcycle with a beautiful Italian Leather jacket. He has his own business selling brick ovens and at the time I was an attorney doing bankruptcies in my own small business. I'll never forget that kiss. Even Italian names are beautiful. anyways god bless!
