My story :(

Recommended Posts

Hi im a 17 year old male, that has moderate to slightly severe acne on my chin area.

My doc prescribed me Tretinoin cream 0.05%.

I cleanse with Cetaphil in the morning, and half an hour before i go to bed.

As im going to bed i aplly the cream to the affected area and expierience some tingling and burning. I also take a multivitamin called 'Centrum'.

I have been on the cream for 2 months now and i cant see any improvments, if anything its worse.

Can you please give me some advice to what i things i should change and just some general advice.

Hi. I've also been using tretinoin .05% cream and cetaphil. I use Duac in the day and tretinoin at night. I've been on this regimen for almost 3 months and I was still breaking out after 2 months. In fact, I'm still breaking out now, but my acne is about 95% gone. I would just say to stick with it for a full 3 months. You might also want to add something in the daytime, like Duac or benzaclin. Duac is good because it has clindamycin, which is an antibiotic. Good luck!
