    When I turned 18, I started to get horrible breakouts all over my face. I had never had acne problems before that. My doctor prescribed many different topical gels, but Tazorac was the only topical cream that helped. This product is amazing. At first, your skin will look like it is getting worse. It will be very red, irritated and dry. But once this stuff starts to really do what its supposed to, ... 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 am a physician in my late 40's still struggling with both black and white heads on my nose and cheeks. As instructed by my dermatologist, I apply each nite to cleansed, dried skin after I have applied moisturizer. 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

    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' ... Show Full Comment
