Yeah. I went straight from using no retinol to using Tazorac .5% cream, and now my face hurts like hell. It's really red and irritated, especially around my mouth, so bad that I can't open it that wide. And I think I have a minor chemical burn on my forehead, like a blister thing. I thought I'd be safe since I have pretty oily skin, but oh well..

I stopped using the medication (and all medications until my face heals again). Is there anything I can do besides using moisturizer like crazy to accelerate the healing process?

(BTW, when I do start using my acne topicals again, I'm gonna use Differin as my retinoid v_v)

Ahh I remember Tazorac and it was hell from day one, I used it for a couple months without any real results so in my opinion it wasn't worth at all, hope it works better for you and I know it does work for some people.

good luck
