Can I apply retinoids on my chest to get rid of huge whiteheads?

I have many huge whiteheads on my chest. they have been there for years.

I can squeeze the black dirt out of the whiteheads on the white bumps sometime

What medications should I use?

Will the retinoids work, since I apply it on my face for acne treatmet.

Any suggestion appreciated

My doctor recommends Tazorac Gel 0.05% for body acne because of it's strength. Personally, putting Tazorac made my body acne three times worse than it was before so I stopped using it because I didn't want to waste money on a prescription. Obviously I was experiencing the initial breakout, but I didn't want to have three prescriptions for my acne (Differin cream for my face, Clenia Emollient cream, and Tazorac for the body). I think I'll start to use it before summer starts so I can get a normal looking body again :D . Good luck!
