Tretinoin switch (.025% to .05%)

Recommended Posts

I've been on Cephalexin and Aczone for 3 years and started Tretinoin a year ago. Before starting Tretinoin my acne was mild to moderate and I experienced a bad IB for close to 6 months when I started using .025% Tretinoin. After 6 months my skin basically went back to what it was before Tretinoin but now (1 year later) I'm breaking out again.

I'm thinking to ask my derm for .05% Tretinoin, but I'm a bit scared because my IB was so bad with .025% and I don't want all the pain to be for nothing. Has anyone had good experience switching from .025% to .05%? Both in terms of IB and final results?
