Q1 : i don't think it's normal. Check back your product ingredients if there is ingredients that shouldn't mix or do not help your concern. Maybe your diet or hygiene? Q2 : yes, you can switch to lower %. If you still sense irritation then I think it's better to change ingredients like niacinamide, cica and adapalene. You can check la roche posay brand. They have much ance treatment options.

Even i use the 0.025% and it still feel strong, i think you should go back on the lower percentage. ✨

If you’re using a prescription like this, it means you have a derm who youre seeing. I’d advise you direct your questions to them as they know your entire skin history and journey and would be best equipped to guide you along. I’m hoping you’re not using this on your own as it’s a prescription drug and can do more harm than good if not used properly

Yes it may be better to use.025% every day because irritation and inflammation can contribute to acne.
