I started using Tazorac for acne in early September. I started off with moderate acne, but the Tazorac gave me an initial breakout and I ended up with painful severe acne for months. It's now November, and I've been using Tazorac religiously for 3 months, and my skin is finally 100% clear! The initial breakout really is terrible, and I took a hit to my self-esteem, but my skin hasn't b ... Show Full Comment

Tazorac is seriously awful. I was on a Differin/Benzaclyn combination, but still had a few pimples, so decided to ask for something new. Tazorac completely screwed up my face. I have never ever had acne this bad in my entire life, before I only had one or two pimples, now I've got at least 10+ bright red marks all over my face! Wish I'd never switched, my skin is painful and after 8 weeks ... Show Full Comment

I Control the flaking with a gentle mechanical hand held exfoliator device purchased over the counter 3 times per week. After 2 weeks, my acne has decreased by 90%. Hang in there a ...

I'm 23 and for the first time ever I'm dealing with really bad acne on my cheeks and a little on my forehead. I started using Tazorac 2 weeks ago and after reading some of the reviews, I think I'm a little bit calmed now since everyone experienced the same thing. It does hurt like crazy right now, my cheeks are super red but I barely have zits. Just a lot of red marks all over my cheek ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am a 44 yr old female who started using Tazorac for adult acne in combination with Minocycline. Everywhere I put it on me broke out in a rash, face, chest back. My face burned so bad and peeled. I used CeraVe and stopped using Taz and it took over a week to clear up the rash and peeling. I've used many topicals in my life and most cause dryness but never a rash like this one. I can' ...
