OKAY, so it's been a long journey for me and acne (bout 3 years or so), the most recent (and effective) thing i've been doing is tetracyclines (twice a day) and retin a (at night). I also use baking soda to exfoliate when needed and i have been using ACV twice a day for my red marks. I firmly believe that because of all this, my acne is gone. Sure, i still get a few pimples occasionally, but not nearly as bad as i did before. My problem now is the red marks. They've faded a bit with the three months of being virtually free of acne, but they are still quite visible. My issue is that my acne is gone, but i dont know if it would be safe to stop the retin a and tetracyclines or not. I want to stop because im betting that the dry skin that comes from using these two things is making the red marks heal much more slowly. So, i guess my real question is, when is it okay to stop using retin a? can anybody plz help with this? i want to stop to heal my red marks, but i dont want my acne to come back... :confused:
