See a dermatologist: Consult a dermatologist. You probably need to continue on the retinoid until otherwise directed. There are other adjunctive therapies as well including oral antibiotics, accutane, and others which may be beneficial for you. These are prescription, and will require the direction of a good dermatologist.
