Can tretinoin and BP be used at the same time?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I went to the derm because of a really bad cyst I got on my cheek. Gave me minocyclin, I think 100mg, once per day and tretinoin.

I have some BP here as well, can I use the BP in the morning and the tretinoin at night?

I would start off by alternating the use of each every night. Although it is technically safe, using both in conjunction can very easily irritate your skin. I personally was using both a while ago and it royal messed up my face. After stopping, my face sort of cleared up on its own. Good luck.

My derm said to use benzoyl twice a day: morning and evening, then to wash it off about 4-5 hours later and use the tretinoin after. Not sure if this will work for you, but Im sure one in the morning and one at night would be fine.
