I'm really second guessing my decision to use retin a. At the beginning of the summer, my skin was almost completely clear (I had been using duac at night and retin a in the morning for 5-6 months). When I saw my derm, he recommended switching to using retin a at night because it apparently breaks down in sunlight. I guess he never predicted it giving me an IB.
I broke out immediately. The breakouts were really bad for a while but then my skin started to improve A LOT. Unfortunately, it started breakout out again. So far, I have been using retin a for around 3 months (on this new regimen).
My first question is should I expect to see results by now?
Should I continue retin a or just stop?...also, if I were to stop, will my skin go back to the way it was before I changed my regimen?
I feel like such an idiot for ever considering changing something that was actually working WTF.
