Hi there,
Ohh dear,I can understand your problem.
I think your skin is irritated by repeated application of the medications and products that should have not been used if you had these problems especially after the first application with Retin-A cream.
It's quite usual to have some sort of redness and irritation after applying Retun-A cream but then the skin becomes use to it after sometime.
It also make your skin more sensitive to sun light and therefore w advise to apply it in the night and to use a good sunblock of min 30 SPF in the day time.
I am sure all these thing must have been explained to you by ur dermatologist.
1:Anyways for now I ll strongly suggest to stop applying all the topical creams and use 1% Hydrocortisone ointment on the affected areas once a day for 10 days.
2:use a non soap face cleanser,Nivea has a very good soap free face cleanser.
3:tablet Lumetine one in the morning and one in the evening after your meals for a months.
I hope you ll feel much better.
Thanks and all ye best.
