I need some supreme moisturizure thats water based adn won't clog pores. any suggestions? and anyone that has used this stuff: 1. will my skin stay this dry for the whole 12 weeks ?? 2. anything to help the burning? 3. did it seem to rid all your skin probs, including lessening the appearance of scarring? or are scars still prevalent? Answered by Edith Paulus 4 months ago.

Tazorac is really a great product for those with acne and oily skin. I use it, and it does take about one month to two for your skin to become accustomed to the medication. After the 2nd month, you should really begin seeing *much* clearer skin. If your skin is burning a lot, you might need to back down on how frequently you apply it, to perhaps once every other night. (You should only be applying it once per day, at night, before bedtime.) You should also be applying a moisturizer to your face *before* you put on the Tazorac. My personal recommendation is actually to use a pain-relieving antibiotic cream (like Neosporin) -- not the ointment -- on your face for this first month or so. This will also help treat the initial breakout you experience, and the pain-reliever in the antibiotic cream will help with the burning. Then, you can use Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. (This is a recommendation from a dermatologist.) It's soothing, inexpensive, non-oily, and it lasts forever! It's not necessary to use an expensive facial moisturizer; they can be a waste of money and have the same ingredients (or even unnecessary ones that just burn your senstive skin). Also, as a face wash, you can just use a baby wash. *Nothing* is more gentle, and it won't burn your skin at all. Tazorac is a drying medication (as are all retinoids), so use a moisturizer if necessary. Over time, the Tazorac will help a little with improving the appearance of scars (because it causes cellular turnover). However, it really depends on how extensive your scars are. Eventually, once your skin is your clear, if you have deep scars, you may require some laser treatments, dermabrasion, or chemical peels to remove serious scars. Be patient, use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer, and your skin will settle down and improve significantly by the spring time! Answered by Troy Vatterott 4 months ago.

I am active and drink lots of water, and stay away from fatty foods. why do I still have acne! Answered by Portia Fredenberg 4 months ago.

Tazorac is considered the strongest (and arguably most irritating) of the topical retinoids. I would suggest requesting something like Retin-A Micro (which is usually less irritating). You should be seeing results by two months. Three months is the max recommended treatment time by which you should see full results, but you should at least be seeing partial/significant improvement by two months. Unless your skin is oily, Tazorac probably isn't the best choice for you. You should also be applying a moisturizer *before* you apply the Tazorac at night. It helps to slow the absorption of it into the skin, acting as a "speed bump", and helps to reduce the redness and irritation without reducing the efficacy. You can also use some low-strength benzoyl peroxide (around 2.5%) in the morning and see if that helps. Good luck! Answered by Precious Diskin 4 months ago.


Does anyone use Tazorac for acne?
I've been using this for over three weeks now, and I have yet to see any positive results. In fact, I've been breaking out even more. Has anyone else experienced this and will it get any better? Asked by Tricia Hylan 4 months ago.

Yes, I've used Tazorac with my acne. It's a very good medication, but (like with any prescription retinoid medication) it takes time see the results. According to their website, you should begin to see real improvement around week four, but it will be week twelve (most of the time), before you see full improvement. So, if you're in week three, then you should just be just about to see some results. (Yeah, it takes a long time, but this is one of the cases where the results are usually worth waiting for). Many patients do experience redness because Tazorac does regenerate the skin, and that causes redness in some patients. (Tazorac gel is very good for oily skin, also.) Depending on whether you're using the cream or gel, you may need to use an oil-free moisturizer *before* you apply the Tazorac. I use the gel form, and I found it helpful to apply some antibiotic cream (not ointment) before I applied the Tazorac. This not only served as a "moisturizer", but the antibiotic also helped to treat the existing acne. You can also apply some over-the-counter hydrocortisone (temporarily) to treat the redness -- use no more than a week . You might also want to ask your doctor about adding an additional medication called Nicomide-T. It's not commonly prescribed (unfortunately), but it is an anti-acne medication, prepared from B-vitamins, copper, and zinc, which has been established to help reduce redness and irritation caused by acne *and* other acne medications. It helps reduce oiliness, as well. If your acne is not significantly better by 2 months, then return to the dermatologist for a medication change. Sometimes, retinoids just aren't the choice for those with extremely sensitive skin, but this can nearly always be managed, and the results are usually worthwhile. Try to be patient just a little while longer and good luck! Answered by Jutta Surman 4 months ago.

I have never used Tazorac, but it is very common to break out even worse at the very beginning of any acne treatment. Usually things take 6-8 weeks for you to start seeing your skin turn-around. Hang in there. If after a few months you don't see the benefits, then look into using different acne products. Good luck. Answered by Jennefer Killian 4 months ago.

I've never used it or heard of it...but generally whenever you use new acne medication you will break out at first...This is because the medication that you use forces existing bacteria in your skin to come to the surface that thus it will seem like you got more acne....But I dunno man after three weeks you shuold be seeing some results...check out www.skinb5.com ..I've recently ordered it and it seems so good plus I've heard lots of great things about it...its pills with vitamins that are good for your skin, hair, nails...etc...I heard it works really good for acne...plus its natural....A really good face wash is spectro jel..you can find it at shoppers drug mart...Also, to help with your acne ...for a cloth into hot hot water..and then put it over your face for a while..it will kill bacteria since its hot..I hope I helped..peace Answered by Tandra Ottinger 4 months ago.

I use Tazorac and it works the best. For about two days after application it doesn't do anything then it starts peeling. All you need to do is peel the peeling off and you have no more pimples!! Don't put on too much at a time or irratation will occur. Answered by Darwin Pein 4 months ago.

Answered by Fawn Corp 4 months ago.

Tazorac has tazarotene which is a retinoid. a retinoid is a different chemical compound from vitamin A. so what it does is normalize skin shedding and sebum production so it keeps your pores from clogging up. it works really slowly and it takes 3-4 months for you to see signigicant results. at first it is normal for acne to become more severe bacause the reinoid is "renewing" your skin and it's pulling up to the surface the pimples that were already forming. it takes 3-5 weeks for a pimple to form. so don't be discouraged i'm using it right now for 6 weeks and my moderately to severe acne has cleared by 50 percent. just stay on it for 12 weeks and you'll be surprised by it's results.

Tazorac help?
my doctor prescribed me tazorac and i've been using it for a few days, but yesterday it started burning/stinging, and around my nose it looks like my skin has been burned and it's peeling, should i keep using it anyway?, she did say this was a side effect but idk, if anyone else uses it pls help, thanks Asked by Tish Gostomski 4 months ago.

What results can I expect from TAZORAC®? You’ll know after the recommended 12-week treatment plan. Studies with TAZORAC® Cream and Gel 0.1% show good results on most people. Most people notice an improvement in their acne after 4 weeks. For many others, their skin may appear to look worse. If you’re part of the latter group, you may experience peeling, burning, dry skin, redness, or itching. This is very common, so don't give up treatment if these side effects occur. Be patient and stick with TAZORAC® as prescribed by your doctor for the entire 12 weeks. Give the medicine time to work. Always apply moisturizer before spreading that pea-sized dose of TAZORAC® Cream and Gel 0.1% to minimize drying and irritation by restoring the skin’s protective barrier.

Answered by Michael Dreyer 4 months ago.

Tazorac is a great cream! The best thing I can suggest with Tazorac is once at night before before beddy bye time :) You should wash your face with warm soapy water and make sure its dry before you apply the cream. now the cream can cause your face to become dry and peely but this is normal and you really should stay away from facial moisturizer while on treatment with tazorac. Consistency is your friend with this medicine if you skip a day or two it will take longer to be affective. make sure you keep these away from sister or mom cause tazorac can cause defects in unborn children :) Answered by Guadalupe Kettner 4 months ago.

Tazorac cream 0.05 vs. differin cream 0.1?? stronger?
which one is stronger ? Asked by Al Ludvigson 4 months ago.

Tazorac is much better than differin. I was just prescribed tazorac about a month ago after trying differin for a few months. I got tazorac for oily skin that was causing many black heads/white heads.. and just regular ol' pimples. The tazorac keeps your oil glands from going into hyper-drive thus preventing a very shiny complexion and nasty breakouts. It's cleared up my black heads and I haven't experienced any breakouts since. Hope this helps :) Answered by Donetta Pajerski 4 months ago.

Yeah, actually a few weeks ago, my dermatologist prescribed me this cream and the antibiotics.

Does Tazorac 0.05% (Cream) work for acne?
I am confused between the gel and the cream. Asked by Oswaldo Shaggy 4 months ago.

Yes, the prescription Tazorac does work for acne as there has been successful and reliable studies on it. The strength of the drug should be determined by a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or personal physician. The gel formulation is best suited for someone with an oily skin type as it contains a lot of benzyl alcohol, which dries out the surface oil. On the other hand, the cream formulation is best suited for someone with a dry skin type as it contains ingredients like triglycerides and mineral oil that functions as moisturizers for the skin. Bottom line: your doctor should dispense the right formula of Tazorac that is suitable to your skin type. If you are unsure of you complete skin type, take the questionnaire developed by clinical researcher and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Leslie Baumann (she uses Tazorac, too). Register first then take the quiz. If you want to see the studies information on the gel formulation, then see source 1. For cream formulation, see source 2.

NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL 1/ Never, ever touch your face. 2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day. 3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal 4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal. Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing. 5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again. 6/ Do this for 90 days. 7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to �double bag' your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days. Source: A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.
