How to use Retin a cream?

Recommended dosage and administration

Retin-A cream is applied to the skin, over the affected where acne lesions are most prone to appear, once a day before bedtime for best results. Before applying this medication, wash your hands. Clean the affected skin gently with a mild cleanser and pat it to dry.  Squeeze about a half-inch or less of medication onto the fingertip. It should be enough to cover your entire face. Constant use will allow you to understand how much quantity is required for you. On applying the right amount the medication should become invisible almost immediately. If it is still visible, that means you are using too much.

After the application of the cream, you may experience slight warmth or mild stinging transitory feeling. You may temporarily discontinue therapy or reduce the frequency of application as per the requirement with each case. When the patients become able to tolerate the treatment, therapy may be resumed or the frequency of application increased according to your comfort level.

Due to the action of the medication deep in the underlying skin layers, the possibility of an exacerbation of inflammatory response or lesions could occur. This is a normal process and not any sign that the treatment should be discontinued. Any alterations in drug concentration or dose frequency must be carefully monitored through observation of the skin tolerance with the clinical therapeutic topical application.

Side effects of the topical cream

True contact allergy to topical tretinoin is rarely encountered. The individuals with certain sensitive skin may notice excessively red, oedematous, blistered, or crusted appearance over the applied skin area. If these effects are seen, the medication should either be discontinued until the skin integrity is restored or if the medication has been adjusted to a level that the patient can tolerate.

Certain individuals have been known to report sensitivity to sunlight during the course of treatment with Retin-A. However, upon discontinuing the therapy, all adverse effects of Retin-A have been successfully reversible.

Precautions to be taken  

Sunlight exposure, including sunlamps, should be minimized during the course of RETIN-A treatment, and patients with sunburn should be advised not to use the product until fully recovered due to the increased sensitivity to sunlight as a result of the use of tretinoin. Extra caution has to be taken for individuals who may be required to have considerable sunlight exposure due to occupational or other reasons. The use of sunscreen products and protective clothing to cover the treated areas of skin is highly advised in such cases. Medication should be immediately discontinued if a sensitivity reaction or chemical irritation is experienced.

Retin-A Drug Interactions

Topical medication, medicated or abrasive soaps and cleansers, soaps and cosmetics that have a strong drying effect, and cosmetic products with high concentrations of alcohol, astringents, spices or lime should be used with caution because of possible interaction with tretinoin. Special caution must be exercised when using preparations or products that contain sulfur, resorcinol, or salicylic acid with RETIN-A. It is advised before use of RETIN-A is begun, to “rest” a patient's skin until the effects of such preparations subside.

There are well-controlled studies tested for harmful effects in pregnant women. Tretinoin should be used sparingly during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
It is not yet known whether this drug is excreted in breast milk. Because there is evidence of drugs that are excreted in breast milk. Special caution should be exercised when RETIN-A is administered to a nursing woman.
