Been off accutane for 6 months. My skin is 100% clear but the oil has returned. Can i use retinoids to clear up the oil as i have heard conflicting reports that is will make my skin oiler?

I just went off Retin A after 2 months because it made my skin a grease pit! It was horrible
Tretiinoin cream did the same thing to me. Got super oily when never had oily skin before. Been a month since last time I used and I'm STILL oily as hell. Did your oily skin return back to normal after you quit Retin A? How long did it take?

The only acne treatments that have consistent scientific evidence for reducing oil/sebum production are Accutane and hormonal treatments (e.g. spironolactone – only used in women):
