RETINO A 0.05% Cream 20gm


RETINO A 0.05% Cream 20gm is a topical medication that contains Tretinoin as its active ingredient. It is primarily used to treat acne, blackheads, and whiteheads. Tretinoin belongs to the class of retinoids, which are derivatives of vitamin A. It works by promoting the turnover of skin cells and preventing the clogging of pores, which can cause acne. It also helps to reduce the production of sebum, an oily substance that can contribute to the development of acne.

RETINO A 0.05% Cream 20gm should be used as directed by a doctor or pharmacist. It is typically applied once a day in a thin layer to the affected area, usually before bedtime. It is important to avoid getting the cream in the eyes, nose, or mouth, as it may cause irritation. Use a gentle cleanser to wash the affected area before applying the cream, and wait at least 20-30 minutes before applying any other skincare products or makeup.

Side effects of RETINO A 0.05% Cream 20gm may include skin dryness, peeling, redness, and itching. These side effects are usually mild and temporary, and may improve over time as the skin adjusts to the medication. If these side effects persist or become severe, contact a healthcare professional. In rare cases, RETINO A 0.05% Cream 20gm may cause an allergic reaction, which may manifest as hives, swelling, or difficulty breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

RETINO A 0.05% Cream 20gm should not be used by pregnant women or those who are breastfeeding, as it may harm the developing fetus or nursing infant. It should also not be used by individuals with eczema or other skin conditions that cause skin sensitivity, as it may exacerbate these conditions.
