First of all, I'd like to say hello. I've been browsing the acne.org forums for a couple months now, but I decided it's time I made an account so that I can ask questions and hopefully provide feedback for others.
Anyways, back to my question. I was prescribed Retin-A 0.01% gel for my face and 0.05% gel for my chest, shoulders and back. The 0.01% gel for my face makes my skin flake, which I know is normal, and I also know it mean it's working. The 0.05% gel, however, doesn't make my chest, shoulders and back flake. It doesn't really seem to have an effect on my skin. Is 0.05% gel strong enough? Or should I ask for 0.1% when I see my doctor next month?
Thank you for any help!
