Tazorac Cream - Anyone Ever Use This?

619 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I am trying this cream for pigmentation and mild acne (WITH wrinkles....I'm almost 45 - not fair! :angry: ), and I've never had anything burn like this. I used it once, two weeks ago, and my face peeled for about 10 days....very painful. so I decided, heck, this must be good stuff....used it again, but a smaller amount, and it's the same. I've used retinol creams and the like before, almost the same reaction but not this bad. I am using a 45 sunblock every day.

Anybody with experience? Thanks! I can't decide whether this is the BEST product to renew skin, or a complete nightmare....

Susan,

Would you like to try some slobbery baby kisses and see if that would help? :lol:

He's teething, so everything is a chew toy write now. Chins make good chew toys.

I agree with Celia, why in the world would you need the cream....you are beautiful just the way you are. This world puts too much stock in outward beauty (which you do have), focus on the inner beauty. If others judge you because of a few wrinkles or blemishes it's their loss.

<---- look at me... I'm not worried about what I look like.... altho a bit of peach lip stick might help.

What about my navy blue ribbon to go with that peach lipstick?

oh Lordy. I ask a perfectly innocent question, a serious question in fact, about my face peeling off, and there you two are.....offering baby slobber and vinegar....... :lol::P:lol::P:lol:

I just love you girls. And to anyone else who reads this, seriously wanting to help me, PLEASE post your responses, I"m not as beautiful as those two think I am, need help with skin, which is still peeling off.

:)

See you in RAchelville you dingbats. ;)

Doesn't sound like a very good product if you are having that kind of reaction. Have you tried kiss my face products. Meredith and Patti use those I think. Don't know what all their line is though. Try using more natural stuff without so many harsh chemicals. That may make the difference.

:lol::lol:

This is not good.... are you using lotion to help restore the dryness?

excellent mock-serious answer, Cecile....ha ha ha ha I know how to spot a faker when I see one....yes silly, I am putting JOjoba oil on it every night... :P

Andrea - hi! I NEED the chemicals to peel off the outer layer of my skin! :o Yes chemicals are bad....but my skin is damaged and needs repair.....I haven't used the cream in over a week now....still deciding what to do.......

Hey! You moved some of the party over here and no one told me :angry:

Well, I found you anyways! :lol:

Susan, this cream sounds too strong for you--are you using it every night? I know that with a lot of the stronger "peel" type creams, you start out very slowly--like once a week.

If the peeling and burning persist, you probably need something else. Was this prescribed for you, or is it over the counter?

I've been using the Zia Cleanser and Night cream--I used to exfolliate daily, and I'm serious, my skin looks better now since I switched products.

Celia--About the coffee, do you think it's the coffee or that it's a hot beverage? Maybe the hot liquid relaxes your system. Just a thought.

Well, that's it for my 2 cents--carry on! :DB)

Patti! hi there - - - this is a prescribed cream, I have samples. I ONLY put it on about once a week - or should say, have only used it TWICE. very strong. skin's better now, all peeled off I guess. I will look into those products you are using.

:P see you in R-ville, you dingbats.....

I was prescribed that cream for a condition I had on my legs. I cannot even imagine putting it on my face. I lasted two treatments, on my legs, before I threw it away. It literally was peeling the top layers of skin off and leaving the raw under layers exposed! If I were you I wouldn't put it on my face - what happens when you go out into the sun? Were you prescribed this?

It turns out the cream was irrelevant for me. I had something called perforating foliculitis - where the hair follicle grows out and then goes back in - it looked like I had zits all over my legs. There is no diffinitive way to treat it so my dermatiologist used me as a case study. We did 10 treatments of laser hair removal, from my ankles to my bikini line (can you believe he convinced my insurance to cover this??).

Okay now really :o ! Amazing that they got that covered...darned insurance companies don't want to pay for the regular everyday stuff!

    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and slight nausea. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      Thanks so much for your reply and the encouragement! She has not had the dgp test. I will ask her doctor at the next appointment in two weeks. Her doctor is out of the country now for a family emergency so I can't talk to her before her appointment. Her thyroid is good. The whole thing has been tough - logistically dealing with the dietary change and how extremely careful we have to be. Emotionally - worrying about her health and her feelings about all of this. I'm happy her number came down so much. There's hope. I'm just praying there's not more wrong and trying to prevent any possible risk of cross contamination. It seems she's very sensitive. It's also tough she's a kid at school with gluten on every surface. 
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Wonderful news to hear that he has finally had his testing done, and can go gluten free. I understand that he is afraid of needles. Most children are. It is great that the hospital have acknowledged his and your family's suffering. Hopefully now they will give him the A1 treatment that he deserves. I am really looking forward to hearing of his improvement, as no doubt he will come along in leaps and bounds. Children are remarkably resilient, and with any luck he will enjoy a healthy and bright future with adherence to his required diet. Way to go Mum, you have been through a lot, watching your boy suffer. I hope that you are handsomely rewarded with being able to watch him flourish now. Good luck with your older boy too. Keep us posted.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
