Discussions that mention tretinoin

Acne board


Day 8. Got a couple new pimples this morning, one near my eye, which is unusual. Wonder if this is the initial breakout stuff? I can't believe it is since I had been using tretinoin cream then Retin-A for about 10 weeks prior to Accutane. They are supposed to push up new-forming pimples to the surface, like Accutane. So, what could be left?

Of course, my biggest problem was always lack of sleep, and I had a crap week of sleep last week and on the weekend. So, this breakout could be from that, and the Accutane isn't yet strong enough to prevent the breakout. Either way, P.O.'d.
