Using Retin A Not for Acne - New York, NY

I am 32 years old, I started to see aging signs...

I am 32 years old, I started to see aging signs and wanted to slow down the process ;)
Using retin a for 2 months already but so far I do not see any positive results...
I have a sensitive skin, but I am being very careful, using moisturizers and waiting 30 min after washing my face before applying retin a
I started to have small bumps on my forehead (not pimples) small, red bumps, and they are not going away...
I never had acne, and I do not use retin a for acne or pimple problems, so now I do not know what to do... Should I stop using it or not? It says in the list of side effects that this is possible but should go away after a month or so... Its been 2 months already and no change :(
So far no positive effects...

That happened to me too. My Skin dr told me to use Clearasil acne cream on my forhead. So I used that instead of Retin for a few days and it cleared right up. I don't have a acne problem either but my skin is very fair and sensitive. Good luck.
