Retin A with Proactiv??

07 November 2006 - 03:49 AM

I developed post partum acne 3 months after having my daughter. She is now a year old and I'm still dealing with it. I plan on stopping breastfeeding soon to see if it helps and going back on the pill. Anyway, I've been using Proactiv for 2 months now and have seen maybe 20% improvement. I still get the cysts and the ocassional pustule but not nearly as many pustuals as I was getting. I also have always had blackheads and the ocassional white heads. With regards to the Proactiv, I just hate how it reddens my skin and makes the red marks stay long after they normally would have. I feel like my face has nice texture now to the touch but looking at it it looks kinda see thru - I can't explain it - like you can see texture to it because of the discoloring and the blackheads. Can I use something with Proactiv to help get rid of the red marks and discoloring like Retin A?
