Hey guys,

Ive had acne since i was about 13, im now 16 and its got alot better, but ive been using BP for about 3 years and ive discovered that my skin never really clears up completely I always get new whiteheads every morning, and its getting really annoying now because i can never just have clear skin. I seem only to get whiteheads or swollen spots that eventually turn into a whitehead in the middle of the day. Im looking for some advice, my plan is to get Retin-A from my doctor as it says it prevents new spots forming. Is this a wise choice? Please let me remind you my acne is mild i currently have 3 or 4 spots, but the next morning ill get like another 2 new whiteheads forming. Its also pretty bad the day after i shave (i am male) as i get like swollen painful spots on my hair roots.

Thanks guys!

If that's what the dermatologist recommends do it. It helped my friend out a lot. Her skin is flawless now. Use a mild face wash, apply your retin a and then use SPF moisturizer. Your skin will burn if you don't use SPF with retin a.
