Tretinoin Cream 0.05% side affects

I have a side affect of red itchy inflation with tretinoin 0.05%...
I have Cortizone/Aveeno [anti itch cream]
and was wondering if i could use that on the inflation to relieve the itch.
Is it safe to mix the two creams together.

Hello,
What you have can be due to an allergic reaction to tretinoin. First of all stop using tretinoin, then take some antihistaminic like Benadryl(causes drowsiness) or Claritin to relieve itching. Also apply calamine lotion and mild steroid cream on the rash. If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
