Treating acne when you have sensitive skin or eczema can be extremely tough. Most of the ingredients that are proven acne-fighters, such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and alpha hydroxy acid will only cause further irritation to your already inflamed skin. Finding an effective acne treatment that is gentle on your skin is key in fighting acne breakouts and eczema at the same time. Enter the acne prescription topical cream Tretin-X.
Made with a low dose of tretinoin, an effective retinoid, and formulated in an elegant cream, Tretin-x is a great option for those acne patients who want to treat their skin with kid gloves. When dealing with sensitive skin and acne, there are other key points to be aware of:
- Do not use any other medicated cleansers of creams while using a topical retinoid. Steer clear of other products containing salicylic acid, sulfur or benzoyl peroxide. It’s also very important to use an SPF while on Tretin-x or any other topical retinoids, as they make the skin especially vulnerable to the sun.
