Hey,..it's me again! lol. (i posted another answer for your other question about oily skin? ^^)...

Retin A IS irritating, and there's so many negative effects that happen BEFORE your skin actually gets better. I should know since I've used it for 3 years. lol.

If your doctor gave you a less harsh version of Retin A, then he's probably a good doctor!! He definately knows what he's doing. I never heard of the cream you're talking about, but......if it's vitamin A gel, you should see great improvement in about a month-3 months. ^_^

good luck!
