About RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL

RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL also known as retinoic acid belongs to the class of drugs known as retinoids (synthetic or man-made vitamin A). RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL is primarily used to treat acne (pimples), sun-damaged skin and leukaemia (blood cancer). Acne is a skin condition that is common and occurs when hair follicles are blocked with dead skin cells and oil. Leukaemia is a type of blood cancer caused due to the rise in the number of white blood cells (WBCs) in your body.

RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL is a form of vitamin A that loosen and unblock pores in the skin’s surface by reducing the oil secretion in the skin. This prevents the formation of pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL also reduces the excessive production of abnormal blood cells and stimulates the growth of normal, mature cells in blood and bone marrow. The oral form of RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL is used in the treatment of leukaemia (a type of blood cancer).

RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL is available in both topical and oral dosage form. The oral form of RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL should be taken as prescribed by your doctor.

Avoid contact of RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL with nose, mouth, eyes, ears or vagina. In case RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with water thoroughly. Some people may experience dry skin, peeling, redness, burning, itching or stinging sensation of the skin. Most of these side effects of RETINO A MICRO 0.04%GEL do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
