I use cetaphile gentle cleanser and cetaphil lotion, which still burns when i put on after all this time...advice would be greaty appriecated on any of these factors...tips and tricks anything..thanks for the help..Ps all prescribed by derm

PLus my doct said i was doing great, but is he just saying that so i stay with him....

I used Retin A for about 6 months which helped alot but eventually the good effects started to fade. Plus it made my face red and very sensitve to the sun.

I would suggest dumping the retin a and doing the regimen entirely. Also give up on the antibiotics too. They are as good as useless because the bacteria will become resistant (plus you may need antibiotics for something more serious!).

If you can afford it - try a laser treatment like N-Lite. search for it on google. I found it to be very effective. However, I think the regimen is the least harmful way of controlling acne.

I think Retin A hasn't been doing much for you since you still break out after 8 months. Using both treatments is irritating to skin and that can also lead to breakouts and dryness. I say try one treatment at a time.
