Ever since I started using Tretinoin, my face stings when I apply any moisturtizer or makeup to my skin Even in areas that I don;t apply Tretinoin (like my eyes). I also noticed that my eye lids get red and puffy and have a baggy, swollen look. Is this a common side effect to Tretinoin?
Can you help and tell me which one the following you are using?
-Tretinoin Cream (Renova 0.02%)
-Tretinoin Emollient Cream 0.05% (Renova)
-Tretinoin Gel (Retin-A Micro)
This is so I can help you better with regards to the side effects you are experiencing. Thank you.
