Do you think this would work?

Recommended Posts

I have never had real serious acne, just stubborn breakouts on my forehead. I don't breakout anywhere else. I've been going to the dermatologist for about 4 or 5 years and they have had me on various treatments. They most recently put me on Retin A Micro, Avar, and Mincycline in August. This worked great at first, but lately my forehead has started breaking out again. They also have me using two different face washes, one in the morning and one at night. To be honest, I think all this stuff is just irritating my face more and more. The Retin A Micro has made my forehead so sensistive that alot of times it's red and irritated. Like I said I've been using treatments since I was 13, and it wasn't nearly as bad at that time; by this time, I'd like to think that I've outgrown it somewhat. I'm thinking about cutting myself off of Retin A and Avar and just using one face wash at night and seeing how my skin reacts to that. At this point, the Retin A Micro along with a million other products is more irritating then anything else, and I have tried every other treatment besides Accutane(which I dont need, my acne isnt that serious). Does anyone think this is a good or bad idea? Thank you!
