So I had been clear for a long time(over a year) on the following regimen:
Am: cetaphil normal-oily skin cleanser
Pm: cetaphil cleanser again
Retin a micro .04
Ortho tri cyclen
Then, I started getting occasional cysts on my chin, so I went to ortho cyclen. This cleared me up completely for two months. I stopped taking oracea, and my skin went downhill quickly. I started getting lots of little pimples all over my face in places I never broke out before.
Now, I am back on ortho tri cyclen(a week into it) still using cetaphil products, and same topicals, but a stronger antibiotic. I am breaking out very badly! My face is also very dry flaky, and oily at the same time. Two days ago I tried to use cerave cleanser and moisturIzer, and I woke up today with huge spots and clogged pores everywhere. I'm back on cetaphil now, but please help!!

Your face is adjusting to the ortho tri cyclen and the new topicals. Try to only swap out 1-2 things at a time when switching up your regimen.
Short term you can ice your face and take some advil before school/work. Remember the ice makes your face red for like 30mins so might not want to do it on your way out the door.
