Retin A Micro....problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I just started using retin a micro on friday and i was also prescribed hydroquinone for fading my acne scars. i use Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser and Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer which BOTH contains Salicylic Acid 0.5%.

However, today when i woke up, i had little red dots on my forehead and above my lip..like a rash. is that due to the fact that im using the cleanser which contains the Salicylic Acid 0.5%??? Should i switch to using cetaphil cleanser for normal to oily skin and their regular moisturizer???

yup you should switch to cetaphil or any other gentle cleanser and mosturizer that doesnt contain acne medication. it's best to keep it simple and not use too many treatments at the same time.
