What should I do to stop burning sensation and itching on the face after using a dermaroller?

I used a dermaroller on my face cheeks in the beard area and I notice the next day that my face was red and extra sensitive to touch and also had a burning sensation when washing. I use face wash that’s dries out my skin but then I lotion afterwards. Over time my skin started to get really itchy throughout the day and it looks as tho a mild rash is occurring. What should I do to stop this?

Immediate after using dermaroller may produce bleeding points and burning sensation. But reduce the inflammation within 1 week without treatment.

To minimize the inflammation and burning after dermaroller, morning sunscreen and night moisturizer must be used.

Tab Azithromycin for successive 3 days will prevent the infection.

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

Take care
