Hello Everybody,
I love this message board! It brings me down to reality that I am not the only person on earth suffering from acne.

I have a question:
about six months ago my derm. prescribed differin gel and benzamyacin for my acne. My acne consisted of cystic acne around my chin area and on my lower cheeks.

For the first few weeks my skin did everything it was supposed to - drying and peeling. After that my cystic acne went away, however I started getting these red bumps everywhere on my face and my face was very very oily (and red).

So after about four months of this I went back to the derm. and he said I will be able to control the oil on my face with Retin - A (still with Benzamyacin).

Now it has been about four weeks and my face is more oily than ever and it still has those nasty red bumps everywhere.
It seems like the stronger the product the more oily and out of control my face gets.

How long do I wait before I can say that this treatment isn't working and I should move on to another one? I feel like I am ruining my skin.
