Tretinoin Side Effects

Mild side effects –  itching, dryness, burning, and stinging of the skin.

Moderate side effects –   worsening of acne, intensified itching.

Severe side effects –  damage of the skin barrier, chronic inflammation, constant irritation, and photosensitivity reactions

It is always advised to apply a Tretinoin cream test patch to ensure your skin is tolerant to the medication. Apply it nightly to avoid photosensitive reactions after using the cream. To counter the dryness caused by the drug, opt for a moisturizer that will soothe the flaky ends, making sure it does not contain alcohol or chemicals that can further worsen the skin condition.

If the side effects persist or increase in intensity, discontinue the medication and get urgent medical attention.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tretinoin 0.025%, the lowest strength of the medication, is usually best for acne. In addition to having a better tolerance for the dermal surface, the incidence of side effects are relatively less with the 0.025% concentration. You can opt for the 0.05% concentration if the acne does not subside sufficiently. Clinical trials have proved that creams with a higher concentration of tretinoin tend to be the most effective at preventing acne and premature skin aging. Still, they’re also more likely to produce side effects.

Tretinoin cream, going by the name of  Retin A cream, is a prescription medication and is not available over the counter. Retin A Singapore can be either obtained from registered pharmacies dealing with Retin A cream and other Tretinoin cream derivatives or procured from selected private clinics or dermatologists dispensing the medication. You can even order it from Retin A cream Singapore online portals, which will deliver the medicines to your place quickly and easily.

Tretinoin cream 0.025% is the mildest version of the medication and is suitable for mild to moderate acne conditions. Tretinoin cream 0.05% is the higher dose of the 0.025% strength that produces quicker results but is associated with increased photosensitivity and risk of side effects compared to Tretinoin cream 0.025%. Studies have proved that the amount of Photoaging remains the same irrespective of the strength of the medication. For individuals with sensitive skin or high sun exposure, it may be beneficial to use lower-strength tretinoin products to improve the skin while protecting it from irritation.

Tretinoin 0.05 is the higher strength of the medication that has been proven effective for wrinkles, fine lines, and aging spots on the skin. Regular use of the drug can reduce moderate to severe acne to a considerable extent and fade the after scars satisfactorily. It can even work on the collagen of the dermal surface and lighten the skin lines with other signs of facial skin aging.

In one study published in the British Journal of Dermatology, researchers found that treatment with tretinoin produced significant improvement in fine wrinkling near the eyes, crease lines around the mouth and cheeks, skin discoloration, and other signs of skin aging. But other studies have shown that doing so can lead to dryness under the eyes with chapping of the eyes in the applied region. Apply Tretinoin cream under the eyes only after consulting with your physician. Ensure that the cream does not get inside the eyes or other sensitive areas of the facial region.
