Well I had it on my chest I believe but was also treated as if it was acne. I took accutane and it cleared up. I was on a lot of antibiotics over the years for acne which I believe was the cause. Hopefully it clears up for you though. And youre right its usually not as bad as we think.

Hard to say because everyones different. Where is it located? And did you take antibiotics or anything before you noticed it? Also once Accutane clears it worst case you should be able to control it with the anti fungal shampoo.

Accutane will work because malassezia lives off of the oil on your skin and Accutane will dry your skin out. Pretty common to use Accutane to treat it.

Get a new derm first and then continue with it if they see fit.

Youre really not that bad off. How long have you been using the retin-a ? Tried antibiotics?
