    Post Duac/Retin-A Micro

    So, I am a typical acne sufferer. Although my acne is mild/moderate, I have dealt with it for years, and as a 22 year old, it tends to wear on me. I have tried many different treatments, and typically, a regime will work for me for about one year. At that time, I usually build up a resistance to the drug(s), and my dermatologist suggests a new option.

    Last week, the option of Accutane was mentioned, but because of my health record, I opted against it. I have done research on the drug, and as a medical researcher, I have enough knowledge on the drug to know that it probably is not the best option for me. Hence, the doctor put me on Doxycyclene (100 mg) twice a day. Additionally, I was put on Retin-A Micro for evening usage, and Duac gel in the morning. I have never tried any of these treatments, so I was wondering if anyone has had experiences with any of these medications.
    If so, I would appreciate any comments.
    Thanks so much.

    doxy did nothing for me...however the retin-a micro .04% and duac gel are wonderful! it took about 2 months for me to see the results. good luck!

    what is your recipe for that egg yolk mask?

    Also, you said everything came to a head, about how long were you into using Retin A when that happened?
