Changing My Regimen. Last Week Isotrex+Benzoyl Peroxide

I have been using Isotrex (topical isotretinoin) for 3 months (12 weeks) in the night and benzoyl peroxide 10% in the morning.. I had NO IMPROVEMENTS. I had an initial breakout that was TERRIBLE and even if it's gone, it has only worsened my acne. Now I have no inflamed pimples (but even without isotrex I had few inflamed pimples) but I still have a lot of RED MARKS.

I'm changing my regimen.. I will use:

Benzoyl Peroxide 1% Cleanser in the morning and in the night

Benzoyl Peroxide 5% In the morning

Tretinoin 0.05% in the evening

(Products' name : Benzolait 1 mousse, benzolait 5, tretinoina same)

I have one question:

If I used topical isotretinoin that is similar to tretinoin (they are retinoids) I will have a new initial breakout by using tretinoin?

Thank you!!

Because you have already been using a retinoid you should not have an initial breakout. Your skin should be thinned and pores clean already from what you did last weekend.
