Using too many products

Hello. I am currently using clindamycin phosphate 1% and tretinoin cream 0.025%. Will it be ok if I use an over the counter serum to help with discoloration?

Hi there,
It is not suggested to use any two products together without consulting a dermatologist.Retino A can cause thinning of skin and makes the skin more sensitive to the sun. There are certain precautions which you need to follow while using both these products. Whether you should use the counter serum along with these creams should be discussed with a dermatologist .The answers will be based on your acne condition and severity. For more queries and assistance visit  a dermatologist. I sincerely hope it helps.
Good luck and take care!
