Hi all!

I have been on tretinoin .1% and eryacne (a topical antibiotic gel) for about 2 months now. I only have acne on the lower area of my face so I haven't applied the medication to my forehead. And now the lower area of my face is bright red! As you can probably imagine it looks really weird having one half of your face normal skin color and the other half looking like a tomato. Now I'm already using a moisturizer for 2 weeks 2 times a day but that hasn't done much. So I really don't know what to do now.

Should I stop applying the meds for a week or something like that? And if I do that will that mean I will really fuck up the progress?

i used differin and clindamycin topically, at first i had to alternate nights because my skin was getting too red and dry. my derm said that was fine. try that, and when your skin gets used to that, start going every day agian.
