I'M SUCH AN IDIOT (Tazorac)

Recommended Posts

So I'm on Tazorac and have been since Sunday. Being silly ol' me I TOTALLY forgot about the small dosage that you take when you apply the cream to your face. So I smothered the stuff all over for five days! I finished 1 of the sample tubes in 3 days!!!!

So here's what I get from that. My face is BURNING!!! And oh so dry and red too. Man this hurts so bad, I messed up big time. So I'm stopping it altogether for a while until everything evens out and then I'll start to take it like I should have been, in VERY SMALL doses.

Anyway... I just had to vent that out, cause I feel like such an idiot.

P.S. - 1st to post here!

That's alright, just let your skin rest for a week or so. Then pick it back up and apply sparingly.

You'll be fine dear. In fact, this may help make some of your scars (if you have any) and red marks appear better after it's all back to normal. Just moisturize your skin for now.

Is tazorac the only thing you are using (any BP or anything else)?

A mild cleanser, moisturizer, and Taz.

i really think they should make sample size according to a person's size of the face. ive been telling my derm that i should at least get 2 sample tubes cuz i have a big face. sample size according to surface area!!
