Is It Possible For A Retinoid Cream (Tretinoin) To Cause Pih Marks To Get Darker/worse?

Recommended Posts

so im 5 weeks off accutane and have been using this cream that says [EMB 4%, HC 0.25%, MET 2%, RET 0.01%, LSL ML MCD]

not sure what that even means but i remember my derm mentioning its a tretinoin cream?

anyways, ive been using it for 5 days, morning and night and it appears to me that my pih marks look more red and a bit worse.. is that even possible? can these types of creams do that?
