My daughter has been using Differin for five weeks now every other night and now has pimples all over her forehead. Is this the acne purge that happens using a retinoid?
Thank you doctor,
I have attached the picture.

The pimples seem to be acne flare-up. Do not worry. Avoid high calorie, fatty foods, and chocolates. Apart from the actual cleansing product, apply well ripe banana skin on her pimples, let rest for 15 minutes. Then rinse with warm water first following by cold water. Try this before adding any other product.Most of my young patients succeeded, hope she will succeed too. Let me know if you have any other concern.
