Use of effective broad-spectrum sunscreen products and protective clothing over treated areas is recommended when exposure cannot be avoided. • Caution should be exercised when using Tretinoin with products that have a strong drying effect, particularly those containing benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, resorcinol or salicylic acid. • Tretinoin Gel should be used with caution in patients allergic to fish due to potential for allergic reactions to fish protein; patients who develop pruritus or urticaria should contact their healthcare providers. • The safety and efficacy of Tretinoin have not been established in the treatment of patients younger than 10 years of age (gel) and 12 years of age (cream). • The most common adverse reactions are dry skin, peeling/scaling/flaking skin, skin burning sensation and erythema.
