I’ve been dealing with closed comedones for almost a year now. I’ve tried everything; from using, supplements, Paula’s choice BHA... I finally went to the dermatologist and he prescribed me 0.05% tretinoin and spironolactone (which I stopped using due to the side effects), it’s been almost 2 months and I don’t know if I’m seeing results from using retin-A. My CC’s are on and off. I have a very oily T-zone and it’s uncontrollable!!! 

I don’t know what to do and I’m running out of hope. I know it takes months even years for tretinoin to work but I’ve noticed that it leaves dry patches on my skin. 

Does anyone know any regimen or solution to this? It’s affecting my social life and I never want to come out of the house due to my skin condition :(
