Seriously Considering Stopping Retin A
Posted 07 November 2012 - 03:54 PM
I've been using Retin A for just over 6 months now, basic break down:
0-1 month: really dry, minor breakout
1-3 months: AWESOME SKIN, life is good, smooth face, not a spot in sight
3-6 months: Hell. major breakout, literally had maybe four days max without a breakout.
Basically for the last 3 months my skin has been awful, I'm now 6 months in and it's showing no signs of improvement - if anything it's getting worse.
Planning to stop using Retin - can anyone give me an experience that suggests the best is yet to come? Has anyone else had a break out for this long and then it's cleared up...
I'm willing to carry on for another 6 months like this as long as I know there is a smooth light at the end of the acne tunnel!

I'm at 2 month mark of Retin-A Micro .04% and I am considering getting my dosage bumped up
perhaps you should go back to your doctor and discuss other options, because from what I heard you should be pretty much clear by three months. If not, the treatment is probably not working.

Thanks for your input - that was kind of what I'd read.
Think I'm going to make an appointment with the Doc and see if they think I should stop...
The only thing that makes me want to continue is that it did work for a few weeks at the start.
