Disappointed with Differin

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I have been using Benzaclin inthe AM and Differin Gel in the PM. I also take Doxy 100mg every night and wash in the am with Proscar, it's an rx face wash, and purpose in the pm. My face looked awesome for the last two weeks and now it's all coming back. These friggin things hurt and are so red. I'm so depressed again. I heard that the differin might do this, but i'm not sure what to do. Should I stick it out with this stuff or go back to the derm(which takes years to get into for a whole five minutes of time)? I'm 23 and have the worst chin acne ever and am so sick of dealing with this. I was even thinking of accutane, but i'm afaraid it's too drastic. I'm totally confused. Any advice????
