1 month on Retin A Micro 0.08% gel and Clindamycin gel

I am now a month into using Retin-A Micro 0.08% gel, along with Clindamycin gel or Clindamycin Topical Solution. I am still breaking out, but not as much as I was before and my skin tone looks a little better than it did before I started. I had a lot of little bumps on my forehead, between my eyebrows, on my cheeks, and a few under the skin pimples that were a little big. My skin tone looked really horrible as well.  I don't get huge pimple or pimples all that much any more. I think the Retin-A

Epiduo Week 3,4,& 5 Update

At the start of week 3 my skin was looking a little bit better than it did when I first started Epiduo. By the 3rd day into week 3 all hell broke loose on my face. I think I finally got the bad part of the initial breakout. My whole face was covered in acne, a few pimples were cystic, and they took a while to come to a head. I had about 13 active pimples on my face in one day....they just appeared overnight. This made me really sad and I worried that it was not working. I wanted to give up, but

Epiduo Week 2

My experience with Epiduo is going well so far. Going into week 2 my face was really red and very sensitive to almost anything. I had to keep manually exfoliating my face with my fingers in the shower because of the peeling and how dry it became. Also it didn't matter how long I waited after washing my face, the epiduo burned after I applied it and continued to burn for about 20 minutes after application. As far as breakouts go, my face started breaking out more in week 2. I guess it is mo

Epiduo Week 1

I just went to a new derm a week ago and she prescribed me Epiduo. Everyday I wash with Loreal sensitive skin, non-medicated wash and at night I apply a pea sized amount of Epiduo. I have Ulcerative Colitis so unfortunately I am unable to take any oral meds because of the condition of my UC. Before I started Epiduo my entire face was broken out. There was not a even a spot on my face that was clear. I didn't have but like 2 or three cystic pimples. The rest were clogged pores, like little

New Derm=New Routine. Any Advice With Epiduo?

I am kind of bummed because I am on spring break from college right now. I am hiding in my apartment because of how bad my skin looks. I am too embarrased for my friends to see how bad my skin looks without makeup....so no pool time or beach time for me this spring break. So I finally decided to go to a new dermatologist last Thursday. My last one kept prescribing me stuff that either dried my skin out too much, burned it or gave me a allergic reaction. I went through loads of prescriptio

What Can I Do Or Use!? Please Help!

I am just really irritated and so depressed at this point. I have been on retinoids for 7 months now and I have not noticed a change in my acne. I have tried over the counter products, derm products including: Differin 0.3%, Avar cleanser, Clindamycin 1% Solution, Clindamycin/BP cream, Tazorac (all of them), Panoxyl 4%, and Retin-A 1% (currently on right now). I tried Clearzine pills and taking multivitamins, but since my stomach is very sensitive these things keep upsetting my stomach, and m

What Is My Next Step? Suggestions?

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME SOME GUIDANCE OR SUGGESTIONS?? I am really frustrated at this point. Since going to the derm on July 15th 2013 I have had no results in my acne. I wouldn't consider it severe, maybe moderately severe. I break out every single day, usually one or two pimple, but sometimes it can be more than that. I also have Ulcerative Colitis so I am not able to take any forms of oral medications. I tried taking natural medications but they make me sick. So far I have been on D
