I feel defeated. I went off prescriptions 3 months ago and now I have clogged pores and pimples on my forehead, jaw, chin, and nose. F***!! I have to call in the prescriptions again tomorrow and hope that in a few months it will look good again.
I have this same issue. I developed it about a year into treatment. It's off and on for me, and much more pronounced during cold weather season. I am taking a couple nights off a week and that seems to be helping, we shall see! I have become more sensitive as well due to this, but with the cutback my skin seems to be recovering.
Hmm full results, that's tough. I remember by 4 months I wasn't really breaking out at all. So about that long for almost perfect skin. In my experience. I still get acne but it's MUCH more surface based vs. cysts, doesn't come to a head mostly, and the PIH is nonexistent and/or easy to fade. I also use a sulfur based spot treatment every night on any suspicious areas and the combination is magic (I also use Duac in the AM). I would recommend Kate Somerville's EradiKate or Mario Badescu drying lotion. Spot treatments. Hope this helps.
