It is used for acne on the face, chest, or back, where lots of blackheads, spots, and pimples on the skin are present.
Differin is only absorbed in very small quantities into the body and has little effect except on the skin surface.
You should not use Differin if you are pregnant, If you expect a pregnancy or you are allergic to adapalene or any of the other ingredients.
