Starting Retin-A today, only on my chest. What can I expect?

Recommended Posts

So I used to use Benzaclin on my chest, and I still I'm going to continue using it on my face.

But, I went to the dermo today and she said that the Benzaclin works well on my face, but it's not doing anything on my chest. Its not awful acne, just a few papules and some blackheads.

So now I'm starting Retin-A on my chest.

I am afraid though.

I have been told that Retin-A takes a long time to kick-in and that it makes you break-out really bad when you first start it for many weeks.

Is this true?

If so, will it subside in 2 weeks? I'm starting school August 15 and I don't won't to have a red, inflamed, pimpley chest.

Tell me about your experience with Retin-A.

What can I expect?

Thank you!!
