Would the retin-a still cause clogged pores if it was in gel form? Ive been using retin-a .1% gel

Its so weird because I was soooo clear on 50mg  but it took me 6 full months before it cleared me,  I was clear for 4 months then all of a sudden I started getting cysts again so I was bumped to 75mg, then after 2 weeks of being on that my derm bumped me to 100mgs, im beyond frustrated with all this and all right around the holidays grrrrrr lol,........... Hopefully we will all be clear for 2015 !!!!

Hi Shadylee, I was on spiro 50mgs for 6 months and was soooo clear for 3 months then started breaking out around my periods again so my derm bumped it up to 75mgs, well after 2 months I was getting those horrible cysts again so now im on 100mgs with Minocycline to try and calm down these break outs....im beyond frustrated at this point. I feel your pain on the break outs! when will this hell end !!!
