  4. I stopped using Retin-A (.04%) after using it for a year at the beginning of February. My skin now is worse than it was before and during retin-a! It's been like this for MONTHS now! It's red, with hundreds of bumps/red bumps/a couple whiteheads.

  10. I had like no acne when I started using retin-a. But I was an insecure and I did the dumbest thing and started using it. I used it for about a year until a couple months ago.
