retin-a interaction questions

Hey guys,

Been cruising these forums for awhile, just decided to join cause I have some questions. I've been on Retin-A %0.05 for about six weeks now, and am starting to see some results. I've also been getting really into the natural oils too, cause they also seem to really work. But my question is:

Will applying my topical anti-biotic and %100 tea tree oil for spot treatment in the evening right after my Retin-A (10-15 mins) affect my Retin-A's effectiveness in any way?

A word of warning for anyone trying this too, in the first weeks of my Retin-A when my skin was pretty sensitive and dry, tea tree oil dried out my face soooo much more and made it worse, painful! I had to wait until my skin had adjusted, and now I use it for spot treatment no problem. It actually seems to really work.

Thanks for anyone who can help on this!
