Tretinoin Gel Drug Information

Medication Information: Acne or pimples are common spots. Most people with acne are between the ages of 12 and 25, but some are younger or older. There are small sebaceous glands under your skin that make an oil called sebum that keeps your skin supple and smooth. Small pores on your skin allow sebum to reach the surface of your skin. In pimples, some of these pores become blocked, causing inflamed blackheads or whiteheads. Tretinoin will help treat pimples, inflammation, and blackheads or whiteheads.

Two different brands of tretinoin gel are sold in pharmacies. One of these brands, called acnemycin, contains an antibacterial agent called erythromycin along with tretinoin. Another brand of tretinoin gel is called Treclin, which contains an antibacterial agent called clindamycin along with tretinoin.

Tretinoin capsules are used to treat a type of cancer, see the relevant page for information about this drug.
