After all of this drama with the derm and the hospital. I decided to give Retin A a try, although I am still not fully convinced that this is the solution. Prior to my previous experiences with topical treatments, it had only left me with red and sore skin. When I first started using it, I rubbed it on my entire face because it is pretty infected everywhere. At first I thought I rubbed it too much that the gel rolled up in balls, but then I realised it was skin, extremely gross! My skin it now currently raw and extremely sore, I havent been out since using it because you should apparently avoid sun exposure. Im going to give it a one week trial and if my skin is unable to tolerate the burns, I shall give up because I cant spend the rest of life indoors.
