How to use Trifarotene 0.005 % Topical Cream
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using trifarotene and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Wash your hands before and after applying this medication. Apply a small amount of medication in a thin layer on the affected area(s).
Use this medication on the skin only. Avoid getting this medication in your eyes or on your lips. Do not apply to the inner lip area or inside the nose/mouth. If this medication gets in your eyes, flush with large amounts of water. Call your doctor if eye irritation develops. Do not apply to cut, scraped, or sunburned areas, or to skin affected by eczema (a skin condition).
When you begin using this medication, you should also apply a moisturizer on your skin as often as needed to help lessen skin irritation (see also Side Effects section).
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not use a larger amount or use it more often than directed. Your skin will not improve any faster, and your risk of developing side effects (such as redness, peeling, or pain) will increase.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.
