Ever since I turned "30", I have had problems with adult acne. I have been to the dermatologist and he has prescribed me everything from retin-a cream, to benzoyl perozide wash, to steroid creams for my zits. So far, nothing has succeeded at clearing up may face for good. My most recent episode with my face, has been that I put retin-a cream on a few of my zits thursday night before I went to bed, in hopes it would clear up my zits. Instead, when I awoke friday moring, my face was swollen, I had developed more sores on my face, I had fever that I ran all day and night of almost 101F. Also, my lymph nodes in front of my ears, have been enlarged and sore. I do not know what to do. I have been doctoring my sores with alcohol, antibiotic onintment, and etc. I just want all this mess on my face cleared up and I look like a human again, instead of a monster.
