Retin A 0.05

Retin-A Retin-A (tretinoin topical) is a prescription topical treatment specially designed for the needs of people that need to treat their acne. Some side effects are common but they tend to go away on their own. Make sure you tell your health care provider about any side effects that do not disappear, such as increase in acne sores, warmth or slight stinging of the skin, crusting of the skin, red skin, scaling skin, skin swelling or blistering, as well as lightening or darkening of the skin. The side effects mentioned are normally supposed to go away. More serious side effects are possible but unlikely. Your doctor is supposed to know as much as possible about your general health condition and even the drugs you are taking make sure your treatment is efficient and helpful advice is provided. Retin-A is not supposed to be applied for longer than recommended - although you will need to wait from some two or three weeks before you notice the improvement. It's important to avoid missing applications, as that can render you retreatment less efficient. Make sure you always tell your doctor if you think your medicine is not working for you, as an alternative may need to be found.
