Retin A (tretinoin) is a Vitamin A cream used to treat acne. The cream can make your skin very sensitive to sunburn and can initially make your skin look worse (inflammed) before it gets better. You should continue with treatment if tolerable. It can take weeks or months before an improvement is noticed. Your skin should not look thin. If it looks discoloured you should see your doctor.

Retin-A - Hi, I just started using Retin A and I know that it does get worse before it gets better.?
I'm wondering if I should stop applying moisturizer after because my skin hasn't started peeling which is what's supposed to happen.
