What is Retin-A Gel?

Retin-A Gel and the generic alternative Tretinoin Gel are prescription medications used to treat pimples and acne. Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A which helps your skin to renew itself which decreases the severity and number of acne pimples.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Use Retin-A gel as prescribed by your doctor. It should only be applied to your skin and should not be used on open wounds or on irritated dry, chapped, windburned or sunburned skin.
  • Wash your hands and the affected area thoroughly with bland, mild soap. Wait 20-30 minutes before applying tretinoin to make sure that the area is completely dry.
  • You should use enough medication to cover the affected area with a thin layer of gel. Using an excessive amount of Retin-A gel may result in the medication “pilling” or “balling-up” after it is applied. If this occurs, then you should apply less gel next time.
  • Unless you are using this medication for your hands, wash your hands thoroughly after applying Retin-A gel.
  • If you gel this medication in your eyes, wash thoroughly with large amounts of water.
  • Your acne may appear worse during the first few weeks as Retin-A works on pimples forming inside your skin. It may take 8-12 weeks to notice improvements from this medication.
  • Retin-A Gel is most effective when it is taken regularly. Try to take this medication at the same time each day. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens.

Cautions

Make sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you have any drug or any other allergies.
  • Which other prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take.
  • Your medical history especially of eczema.
  • If you are breast feeding.

Also be aware that:

  • You should avoid electrolysis, chemical depilatories and waxing for hair removal on the treated areas while using this medication.
  • If you have recently used products containing salicylic acid, sulfur or resorcinol, then wait until the effects of these products on your skin have decreased before applying Retin-A.
  • Retin-A gel may make you more sensitive to the sun. You should limit your time in the sun and wear protective clothing and use sunscreen. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Inform your doctor if you get sunburned, skin blisters or skin redness and wait until your skin has completely recovered before using this medication again.
  • This medication should only be taken when clearly needed during pregnancy as it may harm an unborn baby. Ask your doctor for more information.
