OMG!!! I just realized yesterday that it was some kind of rash on my face and not all breakouts. It's small red bumps on my cheeks and under my chin. I have just tapered from 40 mg a day to 5mg a day by 5mg a week. I just got down to 5mg last Sat.
I was using toner and zit creme for the pimples I was getting and it just kept, getting worse and worse I thought I was breaking out. Well I just ran out of my cetaphil face wash and when I bought it, it came w/free lotion and I have been putting that on and it has improved 50% over the past two days.
Let me know if you go to the doc and what they say.
