Hi
A week ago I went to a dermatologist because i have struggled with acne rosacea for a while. She prescribed a 6 week course of antibiotics, as well as a retinol cream to put on. She told me to start with only once a week for the retinol, but if i dont have a reaction to start doing 2 days, then 3 days if i dont have a reaction and so on. It has been about 5 days since i started this. I am also using cerave moisturiser and spf for day time. However I have noticed since i started this retinol and antibiotics, I have had a few more pimples and blackheads/sebaceous filaments. Is this normal? Thank you

Go easy on ra.. first use once a week for two weeks
Then bump up to 2 times a week with 3 days break in between.. after 2 more weeks u can dare usin it 3 times a week but only if ur skin is not sensetiv! Otherwise u stay with 2 times a week
