Leathery Red Mark From Retin-A

5 posts in this topic

When I first started Retin-A 0.05% I applied it on my cleavage and I think it went a bit too far down. Only done it about twice, but there is now a red mark (looks a bit like a big red birthmark) between my chest. I'm a bit worried cos it's been over 2 weeks now and it's not getting better. I put Vitamin E and La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume on it but no improvement.

Thing is my face is taking it really well, so I don't know why this is happenening. Anybody got any ideas what to do about it?

Thanx.

Because you dont know what it is, I see only 2 options.

1)Do Nothing (dont know what it is? DONT - PUT - SHIT ON IT)

2)Go to a derm or doctor, get advice make choice from there.

Option 2 in preferable

If its overly dry and crinkly (burnt looking), we have an IDEA of what it is and can use vaseline on it. vaseline is neutral and wont react with skin, but will provide a temporary barrier so your skin can be protected and retain its moisture.

have you tried aloe vera gel twice a day? Maybe that will help, but it will take a while for it to work. If it's bothering you, you should go see a derm.


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
