I just used tretinoin 3 nights ago and now my face is terrible? There are about 10 new pimples in places that I have never gotten pimples. Will it get better? should I stop using tretnoin or will it keep getting worse?
Keep using it for a bit yet. Often the face will get worse before it gets better. It is just the drug clearing out all the pores. Be sure that you are using a clean freshly laundered face cloth and a freshly laundered towel to dry your face when you wash. Cloths that have been wet then dried in the bathroom are full of germs which can infect your pores. If you dont see improvement in 4 weeks, consult your dermatologist again.
