HELP! should i just STOP using my prescription acne medication and use drugstore?

Recommended Posts

Right now I'm currently using tretinoin 0.05% and climdamycin gel 1% nightly. However, I'm still getting acne and it makes my face red and way too shiny during the day. I'm thinking about switching over to using OXY Chill Factor Daily Wash which contains 10% salicylic acid and using tea tree oil as a spot treatment.

Does this sound like a smart move? Please help!
