Adapalene is a form of vitamin A that is used to treat acne. It belongs to the group of drugs known as retinoids. It may lessen the frequency and severity of acne breakouts as well as speed up the healing of any pimples that do occur. Adapalene cream works by reducing sebum collection, which unclogs pores and permits natural exfoliation of the skin’s outer layers, as well as influencing cell development and minimizing swelling and irritation. Adapalene cream is prescribed at a concentration of 0.1%. Adapalene commonly causes dryness, moderate burning/stinging, skin redness, itching, and peeling.
