In brief: Difficult to tell

Skin issues are very difficult to diagnosis without actually seeing and touching the lesion.
Occasionally, doctors may even need to biopsy or culture the lesion to make a determination. Best to return to your family doctor or dermatologist to get you the best answer.

In brief: DERMATITIS

If your md gave you retin a (tretinoin) then he thinks it is acne instead of other skin lesions.
He saw you and tried you on that rx. If the lesions do not heal, he can always refer you to a dermatologist.
