Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

I will be glad to be of assistance.

I can understand your concern. triglow cream contains hydroquinone and tretinoin.

These can cause dryness of skin and cause peeling of the skin, which can give a wrinkled effect.

I would recommend that you discontinue the triglow cream and apply fluticasone cream twice a day on the face for three days.

this should take care of any allergic reaction, dryness and peeling.

Also you can use a moisturizer like Vaseline on the face for a week.

Hope my recommendations are helpful to you.

please let me know if I can address any additional concerns for you.

Regards.

i've just come off accutane and i've been having hard stools with some blood (though i think that's just from an anal tear due to the hard stool) they come out more like rabbit poop. I guess it's cos the roaccutane dries everything out. Is there anything I can do to get my stools back to normal?
