Hi,

My derm has me on almost the exact same regimine. However, I'm just using regular Retin-A and he didn't recommend a cleanser. What cleanser are you using? Did you get a sunscreen rec? I was using Aveeno Positively Radiant before my derm put me on the regimine. It worked fine. But now it seems to be giving me blackheads. I've stopped using it (and so have become a vampire only going outside at night . . . not counting the quick trips from my car to my home or car to office) and my skin looks much better. But I know I really need suncreen.

Good luck!

Hi there,

I have no idea if you still check the message boards. But I'm on the same path and I've been on Doxy 100mg a day for two weeks and I'm actually noticing the difference now. I'm really pleased... I have a whole bunch of red marks but I'm not worried 'coz I know those will go away in time.

How is the treatment going for you???
