I am lamenting these things sprouting out of my chin. Ugh, I'm waiting for one to talk to me, they're so big. I hope my Retin A gets here soon so I can start that up.
Hold me, just try to ignore my chin.

    I know exactly how you feel....I didn't really have many breakouts when I was a teenager, but when I did have an outbreak they were tiny little pimples. Now, however, they are gigantic! I can feel them under my skin days before they actually are visible. Ugh.
    You know what helps sometimes (as odd as it is) is original Milk of Magnesia. I put it on the spot and let it dry and then rinse off. I do it a couple times a day if I am home. It seems to move it along faster and it isn't as inflamed.

    Good luck. I can't use RetinA.

    ((hugs)) hope your Retin A gets there soon! Let us know how it goes.

    I just applied my second application Retin A's generic, t-gel, and whoa. I let it sit for 10 minutes then applied my PSF moisture balancing lotion, I flaked right up, oops.

    Thanks. They never did start talking. I'm liking this new skin regimen. When the blemishes finally start to heal, they seem to heal quickly.

    i'm on hold with the retin-a for right now. when i was using it, the sides of my mouth were constantly cracking, even though i wasn't putting the retin-a anywhere near my lips.

    i feel your pain with the zits, though. just when i think i've beat the zits, another harvest crops up again. :banghead:

    i look a hot mess right now.
