My dermatologist prescribed me both sodium sulfacetamide lotion (2 times daily) & tretinoin cream (every other day) for acne. How do I apply both?

In brief: Like prescribed

Put the lotion on twice a day.
Save the tretinoin for bed time. Wash your face, then apply a pea-sized amount to the trouble spots and rub it in. Both will dry your skin out.
