Re: Topical Trentinoin(stievamyacin)!!!

I've been using Tretinoin for about 5 weeks now. I just went from .025% to .05%. My skin is still flaking and I'm still breaking out. And I'm even getting acne along my hairline on my forehead......where I've never had acne in my entire life. Losing faith.
Lonliness is not a phase
Field of pain is where I graze
Serenity is far away

Saw my reflection and cried
So little hope that I died
