tretinoin .05% cream?how was the first experience?

i use tretinoin .05% cream as prescribed by my physician 2 weeks already,actually mini mix ko sya sa OBAGI Blender and every night ko lang gamitin(blender lang na purchase ko)...my concern is,bakit parang may naglabasan na mga blackheads,kasi every time na mag wash ako ng face,nararamdaman ko...and eventually,minsan nagiging pimples..ganon ba talaga initial reaction?thanks!

    yup ganun talaga effect ng tret sa balat. it'll get worse before it'll get better. ginamit ko din yan before sa acne ko. ok naman sya dahil na kontrol nya yung mga tigyawat pero yun nga lang palalabasin nya muna lahat ng dumi sa mukha mo. thus, you'll see blackheads, whiteheads, pimples on its first few weeks of use. tapos nun unti unting gaganda na yung balat.

    Kung gumagamir ka ng tretinoin avoid other products, lalong magdadry ang balat mo niyan. 4-6weeks, talagang parang lumalala ang acne, pero after that makikita mo kung effective siya. Again, walang specific na gamot ang Acne, maybe you need supplementslike VitmainE 400iu, zinc sulfate, vitamin C, if possible pwede rin ang glutathione. At tingnan mo kung ano yung mga facial wash na ok sa balat mo, mag try ka ng magtry sa mga ito, like Ponds perfect Matte or any other products na pwedeng akma sa balat mo. Avoid stress, dapat matulog sa tamang oras at tamang tagal, maligo daily, water therapy, one of the best way also is exercise daily at least 30 mins.

    James good answer! I like it. at magka surname pa tayo.

    Tretinoin is so good but it will make your skin thin. If only i can afford to have breakouts i will use tret pero takot ako sa breakout.

    Im tryin to use benzoyl peroxide now.

    im using retin-a tretinoin. i love it now. but during the first few days, i was red, it was itchy and my skin looked dry (maybe because of the light peeling effect) the redness was not really the problem. its the stinging and dry feeling,

    No, you dont need. Take lot of fluids and Vitamin C and Vit E, glutathione. Try facial washed with beads ie. Facial scrubs.

    When using tretinoin, stay away from the sun as much as possible and avoid scratching your face.

    @UnoSuplado- you can try products containing AHA Alpha Hydroxy Acid also Glycolic acid. These products will make your skin peel pero di obvious.

    I started using tretinoin last two weeks. Right now, I'm having what they call the "initial breakout". My face feels rough when i wash, bumps are bigger and greater in number. I hope i will have the same effect as those who had successful tret treatment =)
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Update ako after sometime to post the results of my treatment. aja to me ehehe

    Here i am again updating. Since the time that I last posted my face had become smoother. When I wash, I could feel that there is lesser and lesser roughness that I could feel on the pads of my fingers. I'm just going to manage the pimp marks that I have but nonetheless, the pimples on my forehead are all gone, my cheeks have smaller and lesser bumps especially when illuminated with light. I'm hoping the good effect will continue. again, aja to me
