I am on Retin-A .10% and benzaclin(very expensive). Anyways I am on like maybe day 5 and my face is pretty red, but it also is buring like hell. Ok it feels like I have a bad sunburn. I have not been in the sun at all. Is there any thing that can help ease the burn? But not effect the proccess I am trying to get through???? Would aloe vera help? Please help me fellow acne sufferers. I have only tried a few RX and mostly the rest is every single over the counter med imaginable. But I hate to give up so soon. Especially ifmaybe this could work for me. I have ver very deep acne that is lumps under my skin that has been there for years. Also a lot of black heads and cystic acne. The Dr told me that I need to dry out enough so that the layers of skin will come off, so that the deep stuff will come out. So I need to try to stick with this... as long as I can stand it. Any suggestions????? cures???? :)))))~Nat

I had that same problem. Every topical the derm gave me seemed to really irritate my skin so I just couldn't use them. I had to use a much more mild wash for my skin because I have sensitive skin. My skin reacts to everything soaps, detergents, topicals. I also have severe cystic acne. So I get the worst of both worlds, not only is my skin horrible but I can't use any topicals because they are all too harsh. What worked for me was just using a mild acne wash. It worked for a while but eventually I had to take accutane because I had tried just about everything else. I noticed that within the first week or two I had fewer cysts on my face, neck, and back. Maybe you should consider accutane if you really want to get rid of this stuff. I know accutane is a last resort medicine, but if you've tried everything else maybe you should look into it. It wouldn't hurt to try it.
When I used Retin-A years ago I started by mixing it with moisterizer, also one that had some hydrocortisone in it (I used the Obagi skin care line, very good but expensive) and then applying it to my face. I slowly added less moisterizer until my skin could handle just the Retin-A alone.
I have tried almost everything over the years (I am now 33) excluding Accutane. If you are a female I would highly recommend spironolactone, I started about a month and a half ago for cystic back, neck, and chest acne and now I am completely clear. Spiro has had no bad side effects for me and I started seeing results w/in 2 weeks. You could not pay me enough to take Accutane.
