My face broke out again... This time it was all under the skin and there was three of them and one was massive. I'm not sure why I broke out this way with acne all under the skin. It was really embarrassing and I'm still recovering from it. Right now they are scabbing up... at least they are drying out I guess. I am just ready to see improvement and stop breaking out! I keep thinking that my only resolution is to find another birth control.. Can someone please shed some light on this for me? I'm so desperate.. This acne is taking over my life

With retinoids you should have in your head a 3-5 month timeline for consistant improvement. If after 4 months you are not more clear than broken out on a consistent basis, its time to switch things up. I use Aczone too and i like it. Doesn't dry or irritate my eczema skin but doesn't help much with acne any ole way. I've also used atralin which didn't irritate me either but i never cleared up. Keep on keeping on as you're still very early in treatment. Also address internal factors like diet and hormones as that will hopefully speed the process up

Good Luck.
