Hi ... can you tell me what differin is. Is it similar to Retin-A? I've been on retin-A micro forever (in between Accutane). I really love Retin-A and was planning on going back on it, but it is a little harsh. I have a permanent red-ness to my face while on that. I break out badly when I don't use it though (a lot of under the skin type little bumps). I have read on this board that differin wasn't as harsh. What's your opinion? Have you also used Retin-A???

Retin a is more harsh compared to differin. Differin is a retinoid as well. Retin a is stronger than differin though, but if you are looking for something that will do the same thing as retin a and is less harsh then differin may be the answer.

Differin in conjunction with oral antibiotics did little for me. When I started using benzamycin once a day and differin once a day, things got a lot better. I've dropped the benzamycin now and repaced with with just plain BP4%, hopefull I should get on ok with that.

differin pretty much cleared up my acne but did nothing for a cyst every other week or so.

I have a appointment with the derm in December in hopes of getting Differen. I would say I have mild acne with a cyst or two a month. I am hoping that he will prescribe me it and it works.

Differin is less harsh than retin-a, but it is only equivalent to the 0.025% dose. So, if you are like me and require a stronger dose of retin-a to see results, differin probably won't help.
