You think Differin is starting to work on me?

Ive been using Differin since Mid-August. I got a really bad breakout for first 2 weeks and its slowing down now. The scars from the breakout are still there and i'm not getting the big red ones now, but i just got a medium red one today :(. and there are still blackheads and small little pimples. Besides that medium one, i dont have gigant in your face pimples anymore. My forehead started to breakout a lil too now, but my hair covers it (not intentionally). I know its still kinda early since i shud wait for 3 months and its one and half right now. You think im showing signs that its working?

wow 6 months? by then the skin probably stops breaking out on its own from breaking out too much! Personally when I first used retinoids (Ziana) I had breakouts for about 3 weeks. Afterwards things went up hill and only got better and better. Eventually after about 2 months I was completely clear. I was completely clear for about 6 months. The suddenly things stopped working for my chin. For some weird reason only my chin would break out in one or two big cysts weekly. Some weeks I was acne free, other weeks.. not so much. Then I switched over to Differin after battling with chin problems for another 6 months. And so far Differin has seriously helped and I stay relatively clear with differin. last week I ran out of differin and used ziana again... 3 days later, I broke out.

Wow that sounds terrible. Differin definitely works for me too! Stay on it lol.

I'm into my 3rd month of Ziana, and I think it's finally working. I'm hoping it will continue to keep me clear while helping my complexion from the spot left from my horrible IB. Stick in there
