Question: Hello I was talking with a doctor a few weeks ago on this site about a small red dot on my lip that I have had for several months. I sent him a picture and he thought that it was angioma. He said that a dermatologist could treat it or tretinoin cream has been known to help but could take a long time. I am not worried about it taking a long time just that it doesn't scab up. The doctor mentioned dont worry about it scarring. My question is with tretinoin cream will it just gradually disappear over time or turn into a scab before falling off? Thanks so much

Form a scab before falling off

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to healthcaremagic
On application of tretinoin cream it will first form a scab before falling off but the scab won't be very noticeable.

Hi I am 33 yrs married woman and suffering with acne since 15 years. Al long as I am under treatment( clindamycin) my skin is good and as soon as I stop using creams suggested by dermat I break out again. Fed up of all these. Recently my GP suggested me tretinoin 0.1% every night but still getting acne and have dark spots all over the face. Will it be safe to use kojivit gel once a day( in morning) and tretinoin together to get rid of acne and dark spots. Thanks Nisha
