Hi, mgupta, the medication u have been prescribed may cause redness iritation dryness and even burning when you start using it. in some it is vry mild and bearable,in others it is bothersome. Since u have burning throughout the day, stop them . apply calamine lotion mixed with an acne free moisturiser thrice a day. u can even use a mild steroid cream twice for 3-4 days after contacting your doctor .you can continue using sunstop 19.your skin will be normal in 3-4 days. then u can restart the other prescribed creams one at a time and start with 2hours for 2 days if no redness, then increase for longer time.
