[QUOTE=natthebug]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[/QUOTE]

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.
