  • Most acne meds make you break out more before you clear up. Give it a few months.

  • Yeah, it always gets worse before it gets better. I went through the same thing when using Retin-A.

  • Used Proactiv and mine got alot worse before it got better. By the 3rd month it cleared up. I say give it more time. When I got frustrated I started using a brand from the dollar store that had peroxide in it. It's stronger than proactiv and is $4. It's called Acne Free. So not sure if the proactiv finally started working or if the acne free is what worked

  • I was prescribed Benza Clin. It's expensive if you don't have insurance.
    I was also prescribed Differin.

    It didn't make my face worse. I've been using it a week, and can tell the biggest difference.

    However, my dermatologist did tell me it's normal for medicine to cause your face to break out at first. They normally want you to give it 6 weeks or unless it's really bothering your skin.
