The first rule of medicine is never to give anyother person your medication.

Differin may seem harmless, but your brother may have a sensitivity to differin, so a doctor will need to check him.

If hes worried about his acne, get him some BP from a shop/store until he can see a doctor to get a prescription.

good luck to your bro

:clap: Good advice.

Personally, i'm thinking anyone who's getting acne vulgarius is old enough for Differin, but i'm not a doctor. Don't share your presciptions - let a doctor determine if it's appropriate.

Yes, I wouldn't share my prescriptions with anyone, even a little brother. Besides, differin is expensive! Why would you just give it to him?
