A week off differin. Will I get a second IB?

Recommended Posts

I have been using differin gel for 3 months now and my skin was in great condition. No pimples and my red marks were hardly visible. However last week I got severely depressed and neglected to take care of my skin. As a result I have 4 papules on my face now. I am worried that going back on differin will give me a second "initial breakout." I used some aha to exfoliate from not washing my face for a week and duac to spot treat the papules. I take minocyclin but when I first started differin it did little to prevent that initial breakout. Is there a way I can go back on and not have to suffer through that IB again?
