    Re: help, bumpy skin...

    Is it little white bumps under the skin or big cysts? If they are little I would probably get some kind of retinoid like Differin or Retin A. If they are big cysts you may need to start a diet change and begin Accutane.

    yea i have alot of little bumps too. and im on differin (3 days now) so far so good. how long does differin take to work? and not to sound like a know-it-all but differin isn't a retinoid, it's a retinoid-like compound that is chemically synthesized <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/cool.gif">

    I've been on Differin for about 3 weeks now and it has helped to get the bumps out of my skin, but I have a lot more pimples. I think it kind of works just like Accutane and Retin-A but just not as well. It opens the pores and raises the gunk to the surface. Sorry I called a duck a bird. Retinoid or retinoid like, it is pretty much the same thing.

    Matt I've been using Differin Cream for 2
    weeks and a day, and I'm definitely more
    broken out now then when I started.. When
    did you see improvement? Did it start with
    the miniscule acne and then start eliminating
    bigger breakouts?
