I've been using Differin for 10 days now. My main problem is a lot of whiteheads under the skin. My derm prescribed me Differin and Tetracyclin to get rid of it but there's been no change. How long does it usually take for the Differin to show results?

I didnt find Differen much use to be honest. I found it caused a big flair up on my skin. I stopped using it after about 3 weeks - maybe I didn't give it long enough?

Used Differin for 6 months along with Benzoyl Peroxide, as directed by dermatologist. Did squat. Now on Accutane. Face peeling. Exfoliate in shower. Use lotion. Accutane, bomb.

Not sure why people keep insisting on abandoning treatments after 2-3 weeks. The only way you can find out if something is effective is to use it as directed. With differin, it takes between 8 - 12 weeks to determine efficacy, and also indicates that it may cause your acne to get worse in the first few weeks.
