Feel free to comment with any suggestions or personal stories! I hope to log my differin progress at least twice a week for the remainder of treatment.

After my second child I had stubborn acne on my forehead in the T-zone area. My doctor gave my Differin and there was no initial outbreak as well. To get a jump on my skin she did give me a months with of doxycycline and it cleared up within a week. I then stopped the doxy because it was so harsh on my digestive system. It's been two years and the Differin continues to work for me (though I feel it is not as strong as Retin-A which is what I used to use). I also suffer from PIH dark spots after my pimples heal so I use the Differin to help speed up the lightening process. It works but it does take time. As for now I continue to use it only as a spot treatment since my acne is under control. Please keep us up to date as to how well the meds are working for you.

I have some tips for you, you can try it or not. Maybe it helps. Use the differing (peasized) for your whole face, especially the parts with acne. Its really enough. After the differin please do not use spot treatment. I think its to irritating and it wont help differin to do its job. Only use a light oil free mois after differerin (15 min)f you feel you need it) I suggest in the morning wash your face with mild cleanser and after that use a spottreatment as Dan BP, or the AHA instead of the clearaslil. After that, use a moisturizer with at least spf 15 because of your increased chances for sunburn.
Oh and yes,
Dan explaines somewhere on this site the vitamins he uses. I think 30 mg Zinc gluconate, fish oil, vit d and multivit. Stop the vit a, magnesium and the rest..
If the differin doesnt work well you can ask for a .3% strength or you may take doxcy. You also use a clinda/erythromicin gel (antibiotic) in the morning and the differin gel at night, so you dont have the side effects of oral medications!
Or you can try benzaclin, duac, epiduo, ziana etc.
In the end there is accutane..
