Don't know what to do!



Guys honestly. I am at a loss. I really think I am reacting badly to this retinoid,  is it possible? Like I swear I have a million bumps all over my cheek and neck, even UNDER it and I never get spots there EVER. They are tiny bumps no head whatsoever and occasionally itchy. 

I don't know what to do :'( I am in tears over this, in fact I am truly depressed over this. It is affecting my full life right now and I can tell people are wondering "what the fuck has happened? " 

I think I need to stop it,  it's coming on 6 weeks but it's the worst it's been in my life.

I've caught up on your blogs and I really just wanted to send you a cyber hug and say to hang in there. Go back to your derm and see if they think you are having an allergic reaction to your treatment. My bet is that you may have jumped too quickly into the retinoid and your skin is painfully dry. Do you moisturize well? What's your routine?

Either way, don't let acne control your life! I can see that you have had some bad luck lately, and stress can certainly cause your face to react. Take some time for yourself and try to stay positive ::hugs::
