I just started using retin a. I am on my third day right now and skin feels a bit irritated, but not bad at all.

I am using .05% cream retin a from OwnDoc, which is also referred as retirides.

I have researched retirides and it is a brand version of retin a cream in Spain.

Is this normal? I have acne prone skin with some big pores.

I have treated my face with various acne scar treatments before such as TCA peels, Fraxel: repair, Intracel, lactic and salicylic peels.

Is it possible to have no initial breakout or even peeling? All I feel is slight irritation, but nothing more.

Maybe it is too early to tell. If someone can shed light on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
