Differin gel is a topical gel used to treat mild to moderate acne. The active substance in Differin gel is adapalene, which has an anti-inflammatory effect. Differin gel therfore reduces soreness and irritation.
Differin gel is used on the face, chest or back for acne, where the skin has lots of blackheads, spots and pimples. Differin gel is only absorbed into the body in very small amounts and has little effect, except on the surface of the skin. Applying Differin gel to the areas of your skin with acne will help to unblock pores, and to treat blackheads and whiteheads.

2. Before you use Differin
Do not use Differin if you are:
• Allergic (hypersensitive) to adapalene or any of the other ingredients of Differin (see section 6 for other ingredients).
Take special care with Differin
• Do not use Differin on areas where you have cuts or scrapes or if you have a skin condition called eczema.
• Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth or nostrils, and avoid other very sensitive areas of the body. If accidental contact does occur,
immediately wash with warm water.
• Avoid exposure to strong sunlight and artificial UV light.
• If you experience sensitivity or irritation when applying Differin, stop using it and tell your doctor. You may be asked to
use the gel less often, or to stop using it for a short time.
Using other medicines
• Other acne products (containing benzoyl peroxide, erythromycin or clindamycin) may be used with Differin but they must
be applied in the morning and Differin at night.
• Cosmetics may be used but they must not cause blackheads or dry the skin.
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines

discontinued and you should inform your doctor as soon as possible for a further follow-up.

3. How to use Differin
Always use Differin exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
• Differin is only intended for use in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over.
• Differin is for external use only.
• Differin is applied at night before going to bed, unless your doctor has told you otherwise.
• Thoroughly wash the areas to be treated with water. Make sure the skin is clean and dry before using Differin.
• Put on a thin film of the gel with your fingertips to the affected areas and rub in gently.
• Don't forget to wash your hands afterwards.
• How long you will have to use Differin will depend on how quickly your acne improves. After you have used Differin for
three months, it is important that you see your doctor. He or she can then check the improvement of your acne.
If you use more Differin than you should or accidentally swallow the gel
• If you put too much Differin on your skin, you will not get rid of your acne any quicker, but your skin may become irritated
and red. Some peeling or discomfort could also occur.
• In the rare event that you accidentally swallow any of this product, seek medical advice.
