Tretionoin I Think Its Time To Stop

Recommended Posts

ok so im new to the site ive been using tretinoin for a couple of years and at first it seemed to work really good i stopped breaking out and everything seemed fine , but lately i have been getting cysts alot i currently have one thats not really red well it started off really red i didnt mess with it at all but now it feels like a hard lump under my skin this is probably the second or third one ive gotten this month and its only been like 3 weeks once every week , well i think the tretinoin doesnt work anymore and could be causing the pimples so im gonna start not using it ive done research and have heard mixed things about this like it will get bad and many people saying i should stay on it , but ive been using it and these pimple keep coming , plus my skin has been feeling very dry lately . i use cetaphil gentle cleanser in the night and sometimes in the morning but usually i just rinse my face off with water in the morning sometime ill use the cetaphil . ill apply tretinoin 0.05 every night . i never use to get cystic pimples but now im getting them lately so im gonna try and stop its been a few days and my skin doesnt feel so dry but im gonna try it out. i thought trying the same thing and expecting different results seemed kinda crazy but now ill try this im scared to but im gonna try it oh yeah i only use tretinoin on my cheeks where i usually break out no where else and every where else seems to be find occasional pimple here and there but no cysts except for cheek area where i apply tretinoin well any feed back or advice about tretionoin cream or the lump pimple thats really hard and not so red anymore would be apppreciated and ill post on how every thing goes thanks goodbye

I have the same problem. I use Triacneal, at first, it helps a lot to make the clogged pores underneath my skin out onto the surface, but just as a whitehead which I can easily extract. But to my surprise, later I got cyst which I never have. At first I thought it's due to my picking, but now I think Tretinion also contribute to it.

Since I stop using it, even though I still cannot give up the picking habit, I do not get cyst anymore. At least, I just have papules size.

so im back the huge pimple under my skin has gone down and you cant really notice it but its still there the one on my forehead is almost gone and i have one small pimple on my cheek first one in 16 days pretty good for me its hard since ive gotten a few new pimples but alltogether only two where i usually put the tretinoin . i really want to stop using it and im gonna hang tough in there cuase when i was using it i was getting back to back cystic pimples and id rather have a few little ones that cystic pimples all the time well im gonna keep it up so if you think the tretinoin is doing bad things to your skin you probably should stop and i was already using in for a few years so i was way past the initial breakout anyway if you need advice just message me well take care everyone
