Hey yall,
I am so depressed right now. For 3 months I have had NO ACNE, not a single pimple. I was using Retin a micro (0.04% ) every night. Now 5 days ago I got two small pimples on my left jaw where I shave (I am a guy). I thought nothing od it but then i got a couple more small pimples on my other side. Because of this, I freaked out and bought DDF brightening cleanser (w Salicylic Acid and Glycolic acid) and Neutrogena Pore Cleanser (w benzoyl peroxide) I started using the Neutrogena in the morning and DDF in the evening and used the Retin a micro at night as usual. Now after this today i have 3 pimples on cheeks; 2 small but 1 that seems medium to large in size. I don't know what to do. Do yall think that it is the new medications? The thing is I did get those pimples on my shaving area BEFORE i bought the new stuff but I seem to be getting even more now. For now, I think I am going to go back to my old routine of just using my retin a micro. Should I get a prescription for the higher strength Retin a micro? Could it be the salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide that is causing me to break out. I know that pimples start to form 2 weeks before you see them and 2 weeks ago I wasn't using these products.Please any suggestions would be appreciated. I just started a retail job last Thursday and I do not need this right now. :(
