  1. Hi Madelineee, don't hestitate to ask questions . I also had lots of questions and did research like crazy just to feel less freaked out over my IB. I try to answer as best as I can but I'm not an expert, just a fellow tretinoin user with longer experience . I hope that you understand me, because english is not my native language. So my sentences are messed up I'm also on antibiotics, long after my IB started. So I'm not sure that I stopped breaking out due to this or tretinoin, perhaps both.
  2. Hi Madelineee I'm also using tretinoin (0.02%), I'm at week 11 so I understand what you're going through. It is not unusual that you're still breaking out. It may take 3/4 months for your skin to be done purging. That's long, I know (T^T). My breakout subsided at week 9-10, thank god it started at week 3 and it was truly mortifying. Tretinoin turned my acne from light to severe (big inflamed pustules all over my face) (>___>). One day I had about 15 pimples on each cheek ! My chin an
  3. Thanks Lemonberry I feel more relieved now. I'll let you know when I finally get clear skin. .(T^T).
  4. Lol XD I read your post before I read your comment on mine, thanks for replying though. (^-^)
  5. Hi Lemonberry congratulations on your skin, it looks very smooth and clear. I'm using tretinoin cream 0.02% and I'm suffering a very bad initial breakout (starting week 3/4), currently heading week 8. Thank you for sharing your pictures, it gives me hope. I hope I'll achieve the same nice skin as yours now. My skin has never been this bad before, it's all bumpy and full of red marks and gets worse as the days go by. I breaks my heart everytime I look in the mirror. And I started to regret
  6. Hi BuffyForever .(^-^). If you want to cry, just cry. I understand perfectly how it's like to get upset over our skin problems. It's better to let it all out instead of bottling it up. Acne is a cruel disease and is really difficult to cope with, especially when everyone around you has nice skin. I know, because I go to a university where I have yet to spot someone with acne (besides me T_T) I'm at the point where I cannot use makeup anymore to try to hide my problems, my skin is extremely sensi
  7. Hi Mimini I also agree with you. I hate how some things happen for a reason. I mean i guess things could be worse but still. I swear, i'd rather have acne/scars on my body than on my face if anything. Sometimes i just wished that everyone looked the same so there wouldnt be all this judgement on appearance. There are so many things i want to do in life but can't b/c i feel my appearance holds me back. I get extreme anxiety being in a really public place for example the mall or even being at w
  8. Thanks NeverPaysAttention , I went to a b-day party yesterday and avoided every mirror over there. That helped a lot. I still felt uncomfortable because I'm the only one with acne. THE ONLY ONE () But I managed to have a good time, allthough there were times I wished that I were at home. I don't have to try to avoid my friends anymore, because all of them have seen how bad my face has become. And they still act normally towards me. Although I couldn't help but feel sorry for them because they ha
  9. Good luck Ello .(T_T). I hope your skin will clear up soon. My face looks like crap at the moment, it continues to get worse. And since it's very cold right now, my marks turn very red. I don't dare to look in the mirror anymore...
  10. Heey Mboona (: Well I don't think that I'm overcleasing and not enough moisturizing my skin, and my products are nonclogging. I'm going to the derm soon and hopefully she'll describe me something to fight those nasty pimples. Did you get an IB when you switched to differin, and was it bad? I truly hope that tretinoin will work for me (T_T)/ but I'm not near the 3months mark yet, so we'll see. Overcleansing doesn't have anything to do with non clogging. Sometimes certain chemicals will irr

  12. Thanks Bek_cogent and PinkPlayBunny for your kind replies, I try my very best to stay patient and be positive
  13. Heey Tyler R, I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one, makes me feel less alone . I hope that you will get clear soon, you deserve it!! Pfff we all deserve it, gosh this phase sucks big time . I'm going to up my dose soon, maybe that will work better since I don't experience any side- effects. Good luck, let me know if you're making any progress
