Tretinoin No Prescription

Tretinoin is prescribed for topical treatment of cutaneous lesions in patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma.
Tretinoin is prescribed to treat acne. It promotes peeling of affected skin areas and unclogs pores. Tretinoin controls acne but does not cure it.

An important regulator of gene expression during growth and development, and in neoplasms. Tretinoin, also known as retinoic acid and derived from maternal vitamin A, is essential for normal growth; and embryonic development. An excess of tretinoin can be teratogenic. It is prescribed in the treatment of psoriasis; acne vulgaris; and several other skin diseases. It has also been approved for use in promyelocytic leukemia (leukemia, promyelocytic, acute).

Tretinoin Contraindications

Tretinoin is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to retinoids or to any of the ingredients of the product.

Tretinoin Without a Prescription

Tretinoin comes in topical liquid, cream, and gel. Tretinoin usually is used daily at bedtime or once every 2 or 3 days.

Your acne probably will get worse (red, scaling skin and an increase in acne sores) during the first 7-10 days that you use Tretinoin. Nevertheless, continue to use it; the acne sores should disappear. Usually 2-3 weeks (and sometimes more than 6 weeks) of regular use of tretinoin is required before improvement is seen.

Use only nonmedicated cosmetics on cleansed skin. Do not use topical preparations with a lot of alcohol, menthol, spices, or lime (e.g., shaving lotions, astringents, and perfumes); they can sting your skin, especially when you first use tretinoin.

Do not use any other topical prescriptions, especially benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid (wart remover), and dandruff shampoos containing sulfur or resorcinol unless your doctor directs you to do so. If you have used any of these topical prescriptions recently, ask your doctor if you should wait before using tretinoin.

If you are to apply any form of tretinoin, follow these steps:

* Wash your hands and affected skin area thoroughly with mild, bland soap (not medicated or abrasive soap or soap that dries the skin) and water. To be sure that your skin is thoroughly dry, wait 20-30 minutes before applying tretinoin.
* Use clean fingertips, a gauze pad, or a cotton swab to apply the prescription.
* Use enough prescription to cover the affected area lightly. Do not oversaturate the gauze pad or cotton swab.

Apply the prescription to the affected skin area only (e.g., skin with acne sores).

Tretinoin (9-cis-retinoic acid) is a naturally-occurring endogenous retinoid prescribed for topical treatment of cutaneous lesions in patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma. Tretinoin inhibits the growth of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) cells in vitro.
