I am 28 years old. I have been experiencing skin inflammation for around 6 years now. I have had a go at everything from neutrogena items, to pro activ. The proactive had a postivie effect for a couple of months, clearing my skin. In any case, following a couple of months, my skin gets used to the proactive and it doesnt work any longer. Baffled, I went to my dermatologst and he told me to used Tretinoin Cream, 0.25% I utilized that for 8 weeks and was very much aware it was going to require some investment. My skin looked a tiny bit better so I retreated and inquired as to whether he could knock me up to 0.05%. He did and it has been around 1/2-2 months since I have been utilizing it. I would break out terribly and afterward be clearer for a couple days. At that point break out terribly and be clear for a couple days. The most recent week I had totally clear skin, I was so glad it was beginning to work.. Presently I am breaking out a smidgen once more. Likewise, my skin is truly dry. I have dependably had slick skin and couldn't put a cream all over, now I need to put 4-5 layers of various sorts of face moisturizer to remove the flakiness. I utilized exfoiliater cleaners

around evening time and cream in the morning. That doesn't appear to offer assistance. I'm not certain in the event that I ought to keep utilizing it, or on the off chance that this is typical?

Is the flakiness part of the process ?

Will it leave?
did any one else experience this

Gracious Dear, I'm sorry to learn all the inconveniences you've kept on having.
i sned my hugs and comfort to you.

To begin with I'd need to say that Retin-A WILL dry your skin. Proceeding to exfolliate day by day will assist the drying. I am astounded your Dr. didn't ask what else you use or what your every day skin routine is and then clarify what is great and what is terrible. On the off chance that the Dr. didn't let you know Retin-A can be exceptionally drying he ought to be embarrassed. Very frequently Dr's. compose a Rx and offer practically zero data. Same with the drug specialist. Its an aspect of their responsibilities! Anyway...

Let me know did your skin inconveniences begin at the onset of pubescence and your period? Do you tend to erupt around your period? Since quite a bit of this sounds hormonally imbalanced to me. The way that none of these medications work for long is disturbing. On the off chance that it concerns me and it clearly concerns You then it ought to concern your Dr.

Seeing that the symptoms you're living with and you are not in any case getting what you require from the treatments...something just doesn't seem right

I will do my best to help you

I wish you the Best and I trust you can find some genuine help and a treatment that WORKS!
About Retin A - it pretty long

Retin-A was initially recommended more than 30 years back for the treatment of mild skin break out. Throughout the years they have found out that it is good for anti aging also. Retin-A (nonexclusively known as Tretinoin, or additionally prescribed as Renova or Retin-A Micro) is a subordinate of vitamin A. Vitamin An is incredible for managing the way the skin works. On the off chance that one is insufficient in vitamin A for instance, they may have more breakouts/skin inflammation, have more laxity and/or more wrinkles and almost negligible differences. Retin-A will be a type of vitamin A known as retinoic acid which is a more active type of the vitamin. At the point when connected topically, it infiltrates the skin proficiently and goes down to the more profound layers of the skin to address the issues we see at first glance from underneath

I have been using Retin-A for a long time. I started using it for skin break out (Proactive simply wasn't cutting it for me any longer), yet now at age 48 I have especially smooth and even skin (in contrast with other ladies my age) and am for all intents and purposes break-out free. My mom (and a hefty portion of my customers) use Retin-A for a considerable length of time of sun damage and have exceptionally noteworthy and positive results. Additional note: when beginning Retin-A, you may encounter chipping, peeling, redness, smoldering, and so on of the skin. This is totally typical. Since Retin-An is such a powerful type of vitamin A, you may at first experience such reaction(s). Be persistent! On the off chance that you are predictable with use, you will start to see results in 2-3 weeks (one skin cycle). On the off chance that at first the item is excessively disturbing, diminish application, making it impossible to each other day or less until your skin develops a resistance. Likewise, Retin-A can make you photosensitive, so make sure to keep on using a decent quality, wide range SPF. You will LOVE the outcomes!
