First off, I am so sorry for constantly asking questions! I'm just kind of freaking out, because I've been reading too much...

So, my derm prescribed me Differin 0.3 gel and Clindamycin for comedones and whiteheads on my forehead and cheeks. I am on my third week, and I have noticed a bit of an IB. Sadly, I haven't noticed any changes with the whiteheads/comedones, and I am really worried that the Differin won't help with those, because I've read many people saying that it didn't help them. I'm just really sick of all the bumps, and I hate the uncertainty of it all. I know I'm only on my third week, but the anticipation is killing me.

Thanks for your answers! :)

Retinoids won't stop your body from creating acne if the acne is caused by hormones, allergies, or digestive problems.
