Tretinoin: Switch from gel to cream...

Recommended Posts

I've been using Tretinoin Gel 0.25% for the past 2 months. I had a derm visit yesterday and she decided to up the strength to 0.50%. However, when I picked up the prescription, I noticed it was the cream instead of the gel. I don't know if she made some sort of mistake or if she did this on purpose, but I was just wondering if I should have any reason to worry about switching from the gel to the cream? I've read bad things about the cream on here that are kind of scaring me out of wanting to use it...

I've been prescribed Tretinoin .05% yesterday..

Did you see improvement in these two months of using it ? I dont have any acne now (using it for red marks and scars), do u think it will still give me an initial breakout?
