Worsening Second Week With Retin-A And Benzoyl Peroxide 5%

Raf97

706 views

I think that this week I had a little breakout ,maybe caused by Retin-A.. it IS NOT like the initial breakout that I have had with topical isotretinoin in December\January.. (I have had 4\5 very big-new pimples ).

However, exept these pimples, the situation is still the same.. Red marks are still here (maybe two or three are disappearing) .. I have no more dryness. I still say that this cream (Tretinoina same 0.05%, like retin-a) is better than isotrex (topical isotretinoin 0.05%) that was too irritant for me.

My regimen:

Mornings

Benzolait 1% mousse (Benzoyl peroxide 1% cleanser)

Benzolait 5 (Benzoyl peroxide cream 5%)

Nights

Benzolait 1% mousse

I wait 30\40 minutes

Tretinoina same (tretinoin 0.05%)

twice a week I apply an idratant during the evening (Bioderma's Sebium hydra)

Have you thought about adding a moisturizer? (if this is all you're using?) It seems to me like some moisture couldn't hurt. Other than that good luck!

Sounds like a good regimen. Adding BP was really smart. Have you considered adding antibiotics since you get some deeper cysts? Just curious and hopeful. Antibiotics clear my skin totally. Spironolactone is females only. Your profile is all secretive, no gender, age or location so I have no idea if you are male or female.

I use a moisturizer twice a week (Bioderma's Sebium Hydra)

Hi, I'm male, I'm 17 and I come from Italy :) Do you mean oral or topical antibiotics?

I would like to use a topical antibiotic but I don't know which one.. What do you say? :)
