Add anti inflammatory drug, watch cautiously for a couple fo days

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

I think if you were seen by a dermatologist, it might be quite early to think of treatment failure. Redness and burning are signs of inflammation.

I suggest you could add an anti inflammatory drug to your treatment and watch for a couple of days (Ibuprofen, Diclofenac with an antacid in case you have peptic ulcers) could be good for a start.

Thanks and kind regards,

Dr Bain
