Blackheads and Retin A!!

Hey all,

Before Retin A i had heaps of blackheads on my nose but now i have a TON of them!! And i mean a TON!!!
There are so many!! <IMG SRC="">

A few days ago i switched to using Differin for just my nose cuz i dont think it gave me as many.

It must be from the Retin A, but is this a GOOD thing? Shall i stick to using Retin A on my nose or not?
I dunt know what to do!!!!!! plz help!!!!!!!


By the way its Week 5 <IMG SRC="">

Thank you for the people who replied!

Re: Blackheads and Retin A!!

Hi there I'm new to this site and am also on retin A (0.025% gel) and also oxytetracyline since 30/11/01.
I have also experinced an increase in blackheads I thiunk it is just where the retin is pushing everything to the surface, I wait until they stick out from the surface and pull them out with tweezors to avoid squeezing!!

Re: Blackheads and Retin A!!

I agree, Zeppeh- This is probably a sign that its working (yay!) I had a similar experience with Proactiv- As the layers of skin slowly peeled away, the blackheads deep down kept getting closer to the surface, then finally they would come out. After all those were gone, my face has stayed clear. I was on Differin prior to using Proactiv, the same thing happened but it took much longer and fewer blackheads surfaced...
