Retin A and Benzoyl Peroxide

Recommended Posts

I was prescribed with retin-a and my doctor told me to apply it every other night. Will i be able to use benzoyl peroxide on the nights i don't apply retin-a?? or should i use retin a in the night and benzoyl peroxide in the mornings?

I wouldn't. The Retin A can be pretty irritating when you first start it.

Please read the following post on how topical retinoids work and why patience and perseverance is required when using topical retinoids: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Info-reti...ial-t98395.html Please also realize that at least three months on the medication is required for noticing full benefit. You may experience an 'initial breakout' (explained in previous link) that's due to the purging effect of retinoids.
