It can cause irritation, so start by building up retinol use slowly to help skin to adapt. Use a retinol cream every third night for a week, then alternate nights for a week before going for nightly use. Retinol may cause increased sun sensitivity, so you should wear sun screen while using any product containing retinol.
The irritation tends to improve after a couple of weeks. Generally if you introduce it slowly you don’t get irritation.
