Taking spot treatment for sensitive skin. How long should the treatment be taken?

Got red marks left from spots and I have sensitive skin , currently using spot cream for sensitive skin which has worked a lot, but I have been doing this for about two weeks now... I don t know if I have too wait longer to see an effect or whether this should have worked by now. I also tried sudocrem but this made my face sting as soon as I applied it so I took it straight off, any help would be muh appreciated , thank you

Hi there,
The history is very brief and there are couple of questions I would have asked you before commenting on your question.
Like for example what is the cause of your sensitive skin? Is it sensitive to sunlight ? Is there any associated history of Eczema,rosacea or any other problem?
What is the name and ingridients of the cream you are using for sensitivity? Have you been using any steroidal topical cream?
So the bottom line is that if you have the answers for these questions then it would be very easy to reach to a conclusion,I would say contact your dermatologist and ask these questions and hopefully you ll get your answers.
Thanks
