How do you reduce skin peeling while using differin (adapalene) gel?

Change treatments.: Differin (adapalene) also comes in cream form - creams are less drying than gels. If the cream still causes peeling, use less of it, or apply it at bedtime, or both. If it still dries your skin, ask your dermatologist for a different treatment. Trying to neutralize a drying skin treatment with moisturizers is an exercise in futility, and defeats the whole purpose.

What should I use as an exfoliator for peeling skin from using differin (adapalene) 0.1% gel? I've been using for 5 weeks; this is the 1st time I've had peeling.

No need.: Most retinoid creams (including differin) cause peeling sometimes, especially during cold weather. Often, all you have to do is apply a little less each night. You can also use a light moisturizer if you wish (one that says "non-comedogenic" on the label). If the peeling persists, try skipping a day of treatment. But exfoliation just causes more peeling in most cases.

Dry peeling skin on differin (adapalene) is this a good sign?

Yes: This is exactly what one should expect from a topical retinoid (differin (adapalene) is a retinoid). In the early studies on this class of medicine the researchers felt that if a patient is not getting red and peeling then the strength of the retinoid is not high enough. This side effect can often resolve or can be alleviated with a simple noncomedogenic moisturizer. Good question.

Stop for now: Skip a few days to a week and then try an every other day schedule. Your reaction is likely just evidence of increased sensitivity to the meds. If every other day doesn't work out let your doc know.

So I was using differin (adapalene) but got red peeling irritated skin so I stopped using it for a week should I continue to use it?

Differin (adapalene): One should only use a pea size amount of differin (adapalene) on your face at night. You can use a moisturizer after you apply the differin (adapalene). You can also differin (adapalene) every third night to begin with. If these methods are not effective then you should stop the differin (adapalene) and try another product.

Unexpected reaction: Clinpar is a topical antibiotic gel and it should not cause your skin to peel. Either you are reacting to the chemical or the gel form is too drying, in which case, a skin moisturizer may work. At this point. I recommend that you stop the gel and discuss with your doctor alternative treatments.

How to treat skin peeling after sunburn?

Don't Pick & Peel: The best thing to do after a burn is to apply cool compresses and Hydrocortisone cream. Once the peeling begins, it is best to keep the affected areas as hydrated as possible by application of copious amounts of moisturizers. Avoid picking or peeling away the skin so that the new skin is given a protective covering under which it can heal.

Should I moisturize my baby’s peeling skin?

No: Newborns, especially those born after their due date tend to have peeling skin within the first two weeks of life. This is a normal process and is not cause for alarm, nor does it require treatment or skin moisturizer. The peeling will soon give way to baby soft skin. Once you start bathing your baby, you can follow her bath with small amount of fragrance free lotion if needed.
