Freaking Out On Retin A

Recommended Posts

Okay, this is my second post (first was in 2009) so this basically is my first post.

So I have been on retin a micro .04 over the summer. I used it every other day for awhile, then switched to every night. Around the end of October I switched to .1 gel.

Everything was going great up until now. I'm having a pretty serious breakout right now;

My first in months. I'm just wondering, why is this happening? I thought I was tolerating the .1 well, and it was doing an amazing job, but lately my skin has been more irritable.

Should I just back off to every other night with the .1? I'm afraid I'm starting to revert back to how my skin was before retin a. Suggestions please? I really hope this is just a fluke...
