Going From Retisol 0025 To Retisol 005 Caused Me To Break Out?

26 April 2013 - 12:47 PM

ive been on retina 0025 for a really long time now, but recently the company has stopped making it till august. up until last month, my face was almost totally clear from me using my birth control and the retina, besides me getting one or two pimples every now and then. anyways, my doctor prescribed me retina 005 since they don't have anymore retina 0025 anymore. now its 3 weeks later, and my left side of my face is totally broken out! i have never had this many zits before, but the weird thing is, my right side has 2 tiny spots, and thats it. i haven't used the retisol 005 since yesterday morning but i don't know if i should continue to use it or not. i think my face has gotten even worse since i didn't use it last night. what should i do? i was thinking about ordering the retisol a 0025 from online but im not sure. any ideas?

Switched To Diane Now Im Breaking Out?!?!

22 April 2013 - 05:46 PM

Before, I was on the generic brand of Diane 35, called cyestra 35 for 6 months. cyestra 35 worked pretty well but not as well as I wanted.  last month, i switched to diane 35 to see if it worked any better, and i just finished my pack and my face is breaking out! I don't know why, i didn't think there'd be much different in the two but my skins been so bumpy.It doesn't make much since to me ether because if they have the same ingredients  and do the same thing (balance your hormones) then why is it that my face is breaking out even though my hormones should be balanced already since ive been on the almost same pill for the past 6 months? 


so, why do you think switching from the generic brand to the real brand is causing me to break out?
