For preventive purposes – once a week, after a warm bath. Treatment of flat warts begins with weak concentrations of tretinoin, in the absence of clinical effect, both the concentration of the remedy and the frequency of its use are increased (in the absence of skin irritation phenomena).
Sometimes, the simultaneous administration of oral isotretinoin and the local form of tretinoin is recommended for the treatment of vulgar acne, in this case, if adverse effects occur, either reduce the dose of one of the retinoids or cancel it until the disappearance of undesirable phenomena. In the treatment of follicular keratosis, irritation symptoms can be reduced by simultaneous administration of local GCS. For the treatment of vulgar acne, the use of tretinoin in the form of a gel is desirable. Tretinoin as a monotherapy is used to treat vulgar acne of the first and second degrees of severity. In more severe cases, a combination of tretinoin with antibiotics (local and systemic) or benzoyl peroxide is recommended to enhance the therapeutic effect.
