I have used this medication each night for about 6 weeks. It has helped to clear up my skin but I am peeling horribly around my chin and mouth.

I am happy to report that the acne I've been troubled with has started clearing up. I am using this medication in conjunction with Duac topical gel, and I am so glad that my acne is starting to clear up. Nice to find products that work!

Atralin is much better than Retin A Micro for me. Just as effective in treating my moderate cystic acne without the extreme dryness, redness and peeling.
