Retin A & Isotrex?

Recommended Posts

To cut a long story short I have very congested pores on my cheeks, forehead, chin and predominantly the nose of which every pore has some sort of plug in it. I've used most stuff; duac, Zineryt etc with no success at clearing it up. The last topical I was given to use was Isotrex (Isotretinoin gel for those who don't know), I used it for 4 months with absolutely no improvent so I gave up using it. I've been prescribed Retin A now by my derm but from my understanding Retin A is essentially the same as Isotrex? so the question I'm asking is, is it worth using this given that I had no success with Isotrex? I'm getting fed up with all these topicals giving dissapointing results and by the way I've also tried Paula's choice BHA 2% for a few months and while it didn't have any negative effects it didn't improve things anymore either. I'd appreciate some help here. Thanks
