I have never heard of this kind of a mix. I have heard of mixing retin-a and a moisturizer. He should have some ideas of what to use as a moisturizer. Most derms love cetaphil. When you are starting any topical it's a good idea to go slow. If you get irritated don't do it every day. Apply every 2nd or 3rd day.
