Spironolactone: Normal menst.? For adult women the best way to control acne is SPIRONOLACTONE, an anti-androgen. Often combined with certain BC pills, some much better than others. Often also combined with tretinoin. After a few months, isotretinoin may be used if not clear. None of these if pregnant. Spironolactone will also slow or stop hair loss. Very safe and costs only $5 a month. ...Read more
Where can I get tretinoin cream from and will they help fade Fordyce spots on the penis permanently? Any reduction in size or fadement would help.
See doctor: Trentinoin cream must be prescribed by a doctor but is unlikely to help with Fordyce spots which are deep in the skin and not really spots. They are small sebaceous glands and are quite normal and do not need treatment. Some doctors burn them off with laser or cautery but that can leave scars. ...Read more

Age Spot Treatment: Renova, (tretinoin) in my opinion, has no place in treating any skin condition. Retin-a replenishes collagen & reduces wrinkles. To treat spots requires hydroquinone. This can be used alone, but is best combined with retin-a, an Alpha hydroxy to remove abnormal cells, a pH restorer and a sun block. The obagi nu-derm system is the best way to do this. See a plastic surgeon specializing in skin rejuvenation. ...Read more
Depends on goals: Tretinoin cream is most comonly prescribed for acne, wrinkle reduction and oily skin. Changes in the skin can be seen within 24 hours and often times dose adjustments will need to be made. A daily sunblock should be used as the skin becomes more sensitive. Treatment times vary from weeks to months depending on strength and frequency of application. Check with your prescriber to evaluate. ...Read more
Less turnover: Tretinoin cream improves skin cell turnover and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. In addition, tretinoin can improve excess sebum production. Cessation of tretinoin can lead to a reversal of some of the benefits. Not all patients respond to tretinoin creams and others can have overdrying effects. ...Read more
Not many: Tretionin is a medication to treat moderate to severe acne. If you have been told that you need it you may want to see a doctor and talk about it because it or other options.

Heard that renova (tretinoin) cream made by galderma labs, and is a cheaper one, where can I find it?
Renova (tretinoin) Worthless: Renova (tretinoin) is Retin-A mixed with mineral oil to reduce the redness caused by Retin-A when you first start it. The redness is necessary for the Retin-A to work and the mineral oil is bad for your skin. The fact that you get no redness simply means that you are not getting any change. The redness goes away, but you you get the change you desire. Retin-a is best when combined. See a plastic surgeon. ...Read more
After cleansing, dead oily skin sorta rubbed off, it was sticky, didn't come off easy. Looked kind like that thick tretinoin cream mixed with skin.?
Forget Renova (tretinoin): Renova (tretinoin) does little of what you want it to. Instead see a plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation. Retin-a, the main ingredient in Renova (tretinoin) is prescriptive because it penetrates the skin to actually work. You will have some irritation at first, but your surgeon can help yu through it to wonderfully rejuvenated skin. I prefer the Retin-A combined in the obagi nu-derm system. ...Read more
