The microgel is more is a semi-clear liquid base is more watery than a cream, but evaporates.  With creams the medicaiton is released immediately on the skin upon application; for some this can cause irritation.  The microgel, on the otherhand, is formulated to dto release the drug more slowly, thus causing less irritation compared to the cream.  Another advantage of the microgel is that It can be applied without the need of drying (for 20-30 min after washing) the skin before administration. The gel, however, can also irriate some due to its drying nature, especially for dry skin, hence, patients with oily skin prefer the microgel, and conversely, the cream is preferred by those with dry skin.
