For now, baby it as much as possible. that's about all i, or anyone else here, will be able to suggest to you. It could get better, it could get worse. Don't cleanse more then once a day, don't use retin-a yet, etc. Anything you think might be harsh, don't use. 1 month in is about getting the inflammation down. The sooner it goes down, the better your chances are of improvement. Sorry this happened.
