Re: retin a micro, What DO I DO???

This is happening to me too, but I have used retin a for years and never experienced this. Anyone ever notice this?

Re: retin a micro, What DO I DO???

I have also been on retinA micro for about 10 weeks, but have not experienced that. (knock on wood). Are they like white heads or like millia? My derm. gave me clindamyacin gel to use during the day and the RAM for at night. Maybe that would help. Do you use anything with the RAM? Or maybe just decreasing the use of the RAM. I use the RAM 2-3 times a week.
good luck!

has no one else every experienced this? Has only one experienced problems with retin a cream because of the comedogenic agents in it?

Re: retin a micro, What DO I DO???

I've been on RAM since July I think. It seems like I have a good week, then bad, then good, etc. In mid-September my doctor recommended I use it twice a day and the results have been varied. I've been on various acne medications since December 2003 and it still hasn't completely gone away.
