What is Differin Gel?

Differin Gel treats acne. It works by affecting the growth of cells and decreasing swelling and inflammation. It may decrease the number and severity of acne and promote quick healing of pimples that do develop.

Differin Gel is usually applied once a day at bedtime. Follow the directions on your prescription label or the package label carefully. Apply Differin Gel exactly as directed. 

To use Differin Gel, follow these steps:

  • Gently wash the affected skin with a mild soap or soapless cleanser and pat dry with a soft towel. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleansers; do not scrub your skin vigorously. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend a gentle cleanser.
  • Using the Differin gel, use your fingers to spread a thin film of medication over the affected area, not only to a single pimple or spot.
  • You may feel a slight warmth or sting in the place where you applied Differin Gel. This feeling is normal and should go away by itself in a short time.
