Tretinoin (0.125%) Combined with Hydroquinone (2%) for Acne, Breaking Out Worse Than Before, Normal?

Individualized treatment with Tretinoin and/or Hydroquinone best
If you are not having pigmentation problems you should not be using hydroquinone.
See your skin care dermatologist or plastic surgeon for best advice for your individual condition as typically formulation strengths and application schedule varies from person to person.
