Differin Cream

Differin® (adapalene) is a medicine approved for treating acne. It comes in the following strengths and forms:
 
  • Differin 0.1% Gel
  • Differin 0.3% Gel
  • Differin 0.1% Cream
  • Differin 0.1% Lotion.
     
The cream, gel, and lotion are applied to the affected areas once a day, just before bedtime. Differin may make the skin appear worse before it gets better. In some cases, the skin may become irritated, red, and flaky. However, this usually gets better with time, and clearer skin may start to appear within four weeks.
 
Differin may not be suitable for everyone. Before using it, talk to your healthcare provider about the drug warnings that may apply to you, and tell him or her if you have eczema, a sunburn, or any allergies. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
