Tazorac Cream - Anyone Ever Use This?

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!

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
