How to get rid of red, itchy, puffy and wrinkles around chin?

I used rapid wrinkle repair cream with retinol SA for a little less than 2 weeks. My skin especially around my chin began to look puffy and wrinkles looked deeper. I have discontinued use, but my skin is looking puffy and red and feels itchy. I have washed my skin well and applied hydrocortisone cream to relieve itching. It looks as though I have a sunburn.

Hi,

You seem to have developed an irritant reaction to retinol cream. You can continue with hydrocortisone cream and apply a good moisturizing cream on the entire face 3-4 times during the day time.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
