Ive been using retin a for about 4 months now. It has stopped the breakouts but im finding im gettind discoloration around my upper lip and lower cheeks. Ive been using sunscreen everyday even indoors. Its seems like its getting darker kind of like melasma in a beginning stage. Im currently on retin a 0.5 strength. I use it everynight before bedtime. I wait 30 miutes after washing to apply. Im worried the discoloration might get darker. Im not on birth control pills. I stopoed about a year ago. Never had discolation before. Plus I only use a pea sized amount. Please help. Thx
AskDocWeb: Sounds like you need to have your dermatologist re-evaluate your condition.
I've been using retin a for 7 months with no improvement. I did not experience the symptoms I was warned about when I first used began using the product, such as dry, peeling skin and a worsening break out. Nothing happened at all. My skin did get clear for a while, which is why I continued using the product, however, I ran out and couldn't use retin a for about a week. My skin began breaking out terribly, and when I got retin a again, it did nothing! I stuck with it for another two months with no results. Didn't worsen my skin, and it didn't clear it either. I currently use 0.025%. Should I get stronger cream? What should I do??
