Moved from BP to Retin A - mistake?

Recommended Posts

HI all, thanks in advance for reading my post.

I had been using the regime suggested by Dan for 3 -4 years. In that time, basically, I had no spots to speak of. However, there were a number of red marks on my chin caused by spots. I formed the idea of swithcing to retin-A for a while to get rid of them.

I stopped BP on 7th March.

Let skin alone until 28th March, then continued with nighty applications of retin-a.

Now I have really bad spot breakouts. They are painful and pretty inflamed. I am wondering if

A) I should persevere with retin a - as I think the marks are much less noticeable (although I new spots )

B) How long should it take for retin-a to become effective. I used 5 years ago and it seemed to work in about 3 weeks?

Thanks for reading, and good luck with the skin :)

i think its just bringing out the junk under your skin. i would continue using it and see what happens, with retin-a it always gets worse before it gets better
