Tretinoin Cream vs Gel

I have been on tretionoin cream for about two months and my doctor just switched me to tretinoin gel. I thought the gel was supposed to be stronger but the cream is .1% and the gel is.025%. Does anyone know which is stronger. Also has anyone tried this and had goos results

i think you might have those percentages backwards (cream comes in 0.025%). I don't know which is stronger, but i've heard the gel is usually for people with oilier skin because it has alcohol in it, which is more drying.

I think the percentage is more important than the vehicle. So I think the gel you are on is not as strong as the cream.
