How does this product work? Does it exfoliate the skin or keep the pores open or both? I am sooooo SICK of trying stuff that I can't even tell you. 5 years and all I feel is REALLY ANGRY ! I picked up the tazorac 0.1% gel today and will use tonight. I used an old sample yesterday and when I looked it was expired! Now the rest of that story is that when he gave me the sample in the summer of '01, the stupid stuff was apparantly already expired!! I was using it and it wasn't doing anything and NOW I understand why!!! I guess I never bothered to look at the bottom of the box because I just never thought he would give me something expired. So I guess this will be my first "real" try with this stuff.
I also made an appointment with another derm for next week. I just can't stand it anymore and need a 2nd opinion. I may even ask him for a biopsy just to make sure it isn't caused by my lupus. I am not on meds that would have acne as a side effect, but maybe my skin is manifesting itself in that way.
Well, what I really wanted to know about is the tazorac. I'll give it a try I guess. But that's what I said about the stupid differin and after 8 months I gave up. I AM TIRED OF THIS AND AM FINDING IT HARD TO THINK POSITIVELY. .....!
Your tazorac experiences please. I am supposed to apply and then wash off after 2 - 4 minutes. What should I expect??
