I have been off and on the pill for a while due to my periods and endometriosis. However, I stopped taking the pill in February. Whether I was on the pill or not, I would still breakout. And it would only be on certain areas of my face. I would only have breakouts/pimples on my cheeks. And that is where most of my breakouts happen and where I have my scars as well.
I currently use just regular dove soap and a moisturizer (I put a tiny bit of jojoba oil in there). I exfoliate as well but not too much on those areas to prevent them from popping or something.
I wanted some help on treating my breakouts. I don’t have extremely bad breakouts like some do I have seen. I just get them randomly on my cheeks out of nowhere at times and I don’t like the way it looks.
I have heard that RetinA works great for acne and scars. But I hava few questions about that:
1. Do you have to go to a Dermatologist to get a prescription for RetinA?
2. Can you just go to your regular family doctor to get one instead?
3. Are there drugstore products that contain RetinA and work just as effective?
4. Are there other ingredients that could help with this issue I have other than RetinA?
I have tried several different methods, but none seem to work. Plus I live in Brandon, Manitoba so I’m not even sure if there are any Dermatologists in my area.
