questions about how to apply retin a with red mark please help.

Recommended Posts

1.First off i squeezed a blackhead pimple thingy next to my sideburn and it left a big red mark it is very noticeable.. i have brownish skin and it wont go away but my dermatologist says she is very " optimistic" and that it will fade if i dab some retin a on it. do you guys think it will fade, i got it in november and ihavenot really noticed much of a change.. in fact i think there a mini bump growin.. blahh...

2. I use retin a on mna cheeks side of ma nose, frehead, n temples. i only use a pea amount but to anyone thats ever used it.. doesnt it feel like its soo drrryyy when you are spreading the retin a?!?! lik it feels like when im smearing it on ma temple.. i need more cream cuz its already dried up when i move ma finger like half an inch or something.. i try to dab " mini dots" from my pea sized amount.. and i guess thats working but any extra input would be helpful. thanks.

3. i have been using retin a for like 2 months.. ive used it in the past when i was young.. but i started in april now its may.. and i just want to know when is the right time to stop? is Retin-A a thing where u gotta use it for life. are u supposed to stop or keep going.. or use it once a week or slowly reduce it or what? please help thanks.

For 2, if you splash your face with water and then apply the retin-a when it is still wet it will make it easier to spread a small amount over your entire face.
