Should I apply Taz w/o cream?

Hey all,

I've had moderate acne since I was 11. I am now 23. My derm prescribed with 0.05% Taz cream to apply every night. I'm supposed to apply a heavy cream before hand. I got really scared about Taz after reading all the reviews on the website. So I went ahead and started using it and.....nothing happened. I break out like usual and maybe I have slightly clearer skin than when I started. No itching, no peeling, no redness....nada...

Its been about 4 weeks and I was wondering. If I'm not getting the side effects, does that mean the medication isn't really working on my skin? I understand that Taz is supposed to purge your skin and that's why you get the IB, the peeling, and all that.

Maybe I should skip applying the cream before the TAZ?

Any suggestions? Would be much appreciated.
