I know how annoying they are...I feel like if they would go away I'd feel a lot better about my skin. I'm so impatient, but doing too much made my acne they way it is now..or was before I started differin. I wish I had just left thing alone. I'm trying to say to myself wait until the three months are up and then think about the marks, if they are noticeably going down then I think that will give me more encouragement to let them go away on their own. Do you just use differin as a topical? I find it sooo much better than Benzoyl Peroxide, that's what made my skin go crazy and if I'm honest, before I used it, I could have a huge spot or a few at one time, even burst them (yuck I know) and the red marks would be gone in a week, since using Benzoyl peroxide on ive never seen red marks take soo long to fade. I used it more on one side of my face and that is the only part that flared up...honestly my right side has nothing, and my left cheek just went crazy after I used BP to try and get rid of a couple of cysts. Rant over lol. I'd love to hear how your finding differin.
