I recently got prescribed 0.025% Retin-A cream along with 1% Clindamycin foam for mornings. I used the Retin-A once so far- 2 nights ago- and the Clindamycin both this morning and last morning. My derm said to use the Retin-A once a day (at night), and if it was too drying to switch to every other day. My mom and these boards have told me to start with every other day or even less frequently than that. What should I do? Should I just start using it every day and see how it goes, or should I take it slow?

That Retin-A was so mild and didn't dry me out at all, but everyone's skin is different. I went ahead and did it every day, and I was fine. If your skin is sensitive, though, I might try it every other day first.

I started the .025 every day and it didn't irritate my skin,used that for two years, until i got up to the one percent dose, it actually burned an area of skin near my mouth.....after the forth day. Listen to your dermatologist and just see how your skin reacts. .025 is the lowest concentration.

Retin-A is not bad..I am on my week 9..just be ready because you will break out more in the first few weeks but eventually will subside but still it will continue uprooting all the bad stuff inside....so expect 1 or 1 zits coming out ocassionally...
