About 3 weeks ago, my dermatologist switched me from Retin-A to Tazorac 0.01%. I had small bumps all over my forehead, chin, and nose area. It wasn't too bad but we were hoping Tazorac would knock the rest of it out. Boy was I wrong. It's week 3 and my skin is even worse than when I started. It's a lot more red, flaky, and I have bigger pimples that now hurt. Another annoying part is when I wear makeup, my skin flakes no matter how much moisturizer I apply. tips? Is this just a phase of Tazorac where it gets worse before it gets better? I am considering switching back to the Retin-A I was using beforehand but don't want to do that if I know my skin will eventually get better. This breakout is really annoying and makes me want to hide under my bed. Help!!
