Day 5 -

Noticed slight irritation "itching" on face after waking. No new blemishes though.

Day 4 -

No irritation or new outbreaks to report from Tazorac gel. Skin appears to be tolerating Tazorac well. Dark spots from previous outbreaks appear to be lightening.

Day 1 -

Visited Derm and requested Accutane. Derm recommended Tazorac before jumping into Accutane. Per Derm, my oily complexion, should be able to tolerate side effects of Tazorac well. If no results in 6 weeks will start regimen of Accutane
