I hear you do get an initial breakout w/Differin, although everyone is different. It should stop after the first week. If you have Differin, there should be a information guide w/everything u need to know about differin and what it may cause, etc.

Actually Kevin it's common for Differin's
breakout phase to last up to week 6-8..

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

differin is a retinoid like compound, the initial breakout phase for any retinoid or retinoid like compound is 1-8 weeks. But in the long run, it's good sh-t! i think if the initial breakout doesnt occur past week 3, then ur ok and have nothing to worry about. and no i dont think anything is wrong, if ur using about the size of a pea then ur fine

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

Star that would only mean that there wasn't
very much that the Differin had to bring to
the surface (oil, breakouts), or clean from
your pores before it can re-structure them
and keep them from getting clogged. I'd
assume that if you had a very short breakout
period, that you have likewise very mild
acne. To me, it would make the most sense
that an initial breakout period for Differin
would actually require a few weeks time
before it can actually have an effect, so
you might not even see an initial breakout
period begin until week 2-4 or so..

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

I really did not have an initial breakout with Differin, but I use VERY little. Probably too little, but I would rather that than to have an irritated face.

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

When I first started using Minocycline and Retin-a, I found that the Minocycline helped lessen the 'initial' breakout phase of Retin-a, hence another reason why docs usually prescribe an antibiotic with a topical.

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

Toxxic- What exactly is a retanoid compound and why does it cause an initial break-out?

Everyone- I've been using Differin for 2 weeks now and my skinis 'bumpier than ever'... My cysts (on top) had disappeared with the Cleocin-T and minocycline for the past few months (that's why I haven't been wrtiing) but my skin's textiure looked like the swamp monster underneath... you know when you go into light you see it all bumpy and stuff... Anyhow my derm. put me on differin saying that would clear it up.. its like REntin-A.... but much gentler... I hope so... because my forehead (which was once clear) looks like the surface of the moon and my chin looks as well.. Anyone have same reactions? Is it true it can get worse before it can get better?

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

When I was on minocycline a couple years ago, I did not get an initial breakout. In fact, it started clearing me up within a couple of days.

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

I am on the same combo as you-- Minocyline and Differin... no initial break out at all.

Re: Anyone have no inital breakout or small one?

After a week on Differin I was almost clear!

My breakout started around week 3 and was pretty bad.

Differin seems to be a bit inconsistent for me, one week I'm almost clear, a few days later I could be broken out <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">.
