Doxy and Retin A, starting to work!!!

Hey guys, just wanna let you guys know a lil' about my situation. I was prescribe 100 mg Doxy( a day) and retin A creme (0.025%), I started this on Feb 16. My acne was never "severe," however, a couple months ago I had a really bad breakout. Anyways, my suggestion and miracle saver is Mederma, believe it or not. When I started my regimen I had more redmarks than active acne, so I would jus dab mederma on the spots and in the morning I would just peel that, along with my skin off. It would gradually get lighter and lighter. And yes, I would use mederma on top of my retin a. Retin a really didnt dry my skin out at all, however, I did had dry areas where I put the mederma. Luckily my intial breakout only consisted of a couple of pimples. I have no active acne on my face rigth now, and iam just waiting for my redmarks to fade. All in all, the combo has been working great so far, and it hasnt even been a month. I will continue on using retin a, because of the wrinkles benefit =).
