How should I use A Ret HC (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin/Hydrocortisone Acetate)?
Always use A Ret HC (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin/Hydrocortisone Acetate) according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. Most patients are prescribed one daily administration, but your particular directions will be determined by your age, weight, current health, and the severity of your symptoms. Thoroughly wash and dry the skin before each administration to remove any dirt or loose skin. Apply a small amount of cream to the affected area, gently massage it into the skin, and leave the area uncovered to allow any excess medication to evaporate. It is suggested to wear a latex glove when applying the cream to prevent it from discolouring your hands. Thoroughly wash your hands using soap and water after each application to prevent the medicine from contacting any areas not being treated or mucous membranes. Ask your doctor any questions you have about the medication to ensure the correct usage.
