I've Ended a Course of Accutane 3 Months Ago and Been Gentting Clogged Pores in the Nose Area?

My derm prescribed tretinoin cream 0,01% to start. Is it too low to have any sort of effect? My skin is oily again but the oil seems to be slicker. Please help.

Tretinoin after Accutane

This is a bit quick to already have this much oil again, only 3 months out. If it's only oil and not causing breakouts, then the tretinoin certainly will help. That's a normal strength of the medication.
