Well there are a lot of things you can do, so dont worry:

1. You can try putting on the retin-A every other day or every 2 days to let your skin adjust better

2. You also might be putting too much on your skin

3. The dosage you have maybe too strong, so you might want to try a lower dosage (this was my issue with retin-A)

4. Maybe retin-A does not agree with you, and you might want to try retin-A micro, differin, or aczone...i hear all of these are more gentle on the skin

These are just a few options off the top of my head, I am sure you will find something that works for you. Good luck mate!!
