white heads -closed comedones

my dermotoligist prescribed tazorac for my white heads (closed comedones) , but it seems like it just produces more.
Do you think I should use something else to make them go away or shrink? I first used the cream and now I am using the gel. I feel like i am getting no where. I have been using this since the end of dec 07' Sometimes I squeeze 1-2  or 3 out easily and the others are still hard. There just there. People at work or Church just stare as if I have some kind of desease on my face or something. I don't even know how I got this. I have never had any kind of acne in my life. I am 38 years old. THE FUNNY THING IS THAT IT IS ONLY UNDER MY EYES, LIKE RIGHT ON MY HIGH CHEEK BONES and has spread since then closer to my eyes THEN LATER SPREAD TO MY NOSE AND VERY LITTLE ON FOREHEAD. sometimes I wonder if it has to do with allergies maybe?  I really don't know. I just want it to go away. Should I try a different medication or see my regular physician ? PLEASE HELP.   THANKS IN ADVANCE!  SANDY

Do not be tempted to squeeze your spots as this will spread the bacteria under the skin, leading to more breakouts. It often takes time for even the most effective products to work, but if you have seen no improvement in the last 4 months your dermatologist or doctor could prescribe you a different topical lotion, Differin is very effective. Or you could try oral antibiotics?
There are lots of good make-ups which can cover imperfections without clogging your pores. I like Clinique's new mineral make-up. It is really easy to apply with a sponge or brush and doesn't give a mask-like effect.
Acne in women over 30 is increasingly common and is related to hormonal change.
