Retin A, Duac, Clarisonic, Tri-Nessa, And Oracea

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow readers.

I am at whits end with acne. I have been struggling since 8th grade, and I am currently in 12th. I have been on everything. Currently, this is my regimen.


-Wash face with Cetaphil cleanser and Clarisonic.

-Apply Duac.

-Apply Cetaphil Moisturizer.

-Apply OC Eight Mattifying Gel.

-Apply Estee Lauder's Double Wear liquid foundation and powder.


-Remove make up with makeup remover wipes.

-Wash face with Cetaphil cleanser and Clarisonic.

-Apply Retin A.

-Apply Cetaphil Moisturizer.

I also take Tri-Nessa(Birth control) and Oracea at night time.

About a year ago, I was on Bactrim and my face was completely controlled. Recently it has gotten alot worse. I have been on Duac for 9 weeks, and Retin A for about 4 months. I have been on both pills for 9 weeks also. I had a bad intitial breakout, and then I thought it was getting better. Recently I have started getting little bumps here and there, usually about five at a time. THey go away quickly, but leave smaller bumps. THe worse part right now is near my chin and jaw. I have probably six good sized pimples there. What is going on?! Should I switch products? I shouldnt have a breakout now!!

HELP ME PLEASE! I am so unhappy.
