I have been using retin a micro .04% and azelaic acid for about 4 months now. They have kept me clear. But my face has gotten so red and sensitive again. God dammit. I have this really important date on Saturday, and I my skin will be all fucking pink. I did not go to school today because my skin burns, is too sensitive, and too fucking pink/red! If I stop the use of my topicals, even for like a day I start getting pimples. If I don't wash with dove bar soap for "sensitive" skin, my face gets so fucking oily beyond comprehension! eusa_doh.gif Maybe I will just apply a tiny amount all the time or something. It fucking stings, like this is how it felt when I first starting using the products. Any advice please??

RULES TO LIVE BY

Boxers are cool until things dangle. Sometimes that is the best part.

Orange toe nails are for black ladies.

Snorting prozac to get high is not wise.

Triple inverse and long exchange traded funds deviate to zero with volatility.

Conversations you have with friends are never funny to others. Keep them to yourself.

Retelling movie clips that are "funny" ruins them. You look like an ass.

Soy vanilla decaf venti lattes are 4.65 at Starbucks and 5 dollars at Barnes and Noble.

Its strange you are getting this type of reaction being this far into the treatment. Its too bad you cant take a day or 2 off without breaking out. I guess just keep doing what you are doing and subside the amount of medication you are using. Just use a tiny little bit of retin a all over the face. Like a pea size amount or something. And see if it keeps you clear without the irriation.

One thing my friends sister did and REALLY helped is...peeing on a cotton pad and wiping your face with it. I tried it before but stopped because I felt like it was a hassle to pee on a pad every morning..I've been breaking out lately I'll try it again. If you're interested let me know and I'll tell you details smile.gif
I think it would be good for you since it's 100% natural and coming from your own body, less risk of breaking out.
