Hi all, I've been reading these forums for quite some time now trying to decide whether or not to give the Regimen a shot or to go back to my derm and dreadfully ask for accutane. I've been using Retin-A and Clindoxyl gel (1% clindamycin and 5% BP) for around 3 years which had been working well for me, but these past 3-4 months my skin has taken a turn for the worst. I was fairly clear (never 100%) for about a year and a half but now my acne has gotten to the point where I don't want to leave the house (5-6 cysts, some raised, some under the skin - all PAINFUL)... there is not one moment where I don't have a deep cyst on my face... constant breaking out . Has my skin just become immune to the topicals?... I guess what I really want to know is:
Will the 2.5% BP used in the regimen even have an effect on my skin, when I've been using a topical that contains 5% BP for nearly 3 years?
