  1. I've been using Tretinoin for about 9 months and recently I've noticed a small indentation on my forehead that looks a bit like an icepick scar only more drawn out like a wrinkle or a crack. It definitely wasn't there a few days ago. Anyway, I've read a few reviews of the cream in which people are saying they've developed icepick scars where redmarks had been. Has anyone else experienced something similar? I'm planning on booking an appointment with a derm soon as I find the Tretinoin has been m
  2. Do local pharmacies or beauty supply stores carry any good concealers? Or do you have to order the really good ones online?

  9. hopefully mine will fade as well. anyone else have any output?
  10. post inflamatory hyperpigmentation. is it bad that its very red?
  11. First, let me start by saying that I suffer from mild-moderate acne. Well, about a week ago I started to develop a cystic pimple on the side of my nose (every once in a while I get them there). It grew quite large and about a week later a whitehead (or pustule?) started to form on it. Over the next few days it drained out by itself and then became very dry. A day or two ago the dry skin that covered it fell off to reveal redness where the pimple had been. The area where the skin broke to drain i
