Recently (2 weeks ago) I cleansed my skin with castor oil, twice, two days apart. I broke out within a few days into masses of comedones all over my face - pretty much everywhere (no cysts). Some of them are big enough to squeeze out. But there are thousands of tiny ones, only visible when I stretch my skin under the right light, that give my skin a bumpy texture. I don't know if the castor oil is responsible, but it seems like a likely candidate.
I'm on tretinoin right now, and have been for the last 1.5 months. I am wondering how long it will take to get over this breakout. Does anyone have experience with a similar kind of thing? Is the castor oil really responsible? Could it be something else - I was scrubbing my skin quite roughly to get dead skin off (from tretinoin), perhaps this triggered this massive breakout?
