This medication is used to treat acne. It may decrease the number and severity of acne pimples and promote quick healing of pimples that do develop. Tretinoin belongs to a class of medications called retinoids. It works by affecting the growth of skin cells.

Usual Adult Dose for Acne

Recommended dose: Apply a thin layer to the entire affected area once a day at bedtime

Usual Adult Dose for Dermatoheliosis

Recommended dose: Apply a pea-sized amount to the entire affected area once a day at bedtime
Duration of therapy: 48 weeks (0.05% cream/emollient cream) and 52 weeks (0.02% cream)

A brief sensation of warmth or stinging may occur immediately after applying the medication. Skin redness, dryness, itching, scaling, mild burning, or worsening of acne may occur during the first 2-4 weeks of using the medication. These effects usually decrease with continued use. A daytime moisturizer may be helpful for excessive dry skin (see Notes).

If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your doctor may want you to decrease how often you use tretinoin, change the strength or type, or have you stop using it.
