I was still getting the odd breakout and I had some rolling scars, I decided to use a topical retinoid, Retin A... first 2 weeks my scars and red marks looked even better! Then I got a HUGE breakout from the IB of Retin A.... Its lasted weeeeks. Im now getting over that, but the red marks are 10X worse than they were 9 months ago. The only thing I keep reminding myself is that my skin healed last time.... and it will do it again!
Please just give your skin TIME, moisturize, and maybe use some glycolic acid.... but the rest of all this rubbish wont work, trust me I tried it!

I am going to try lemons for my scars. There are so many good reviews for them.

I'll try peelings in a couple months. I've read some of your threads before and it seems like lactic/glycolic worked for you! Thank you for sharing your experience
Good luck with retin A!!

I'm using epiduo at night and watered down cream cleanser to remove makeup, otherwise I don't touch it or I wash with water. If I feel really clogged then I use a glyolic wash (no more than once a week) my skin seems to be much happier!
N. Clare, how's it going washing your face with just water? I tried that a few years back and it made me feel really dirty. Good luck.
