A member asked:

I used retino-a 0.025% on my face, and it started burning and turning red , worried i used aloe vera on it. It's all red and blotchy now.?

Irritated: Sounds like the retina may be too strong if happened after only one use, may need a milder product. If happened after continuous use, try using 1x week, then 2x week, etc. If can't tolerate will need a milder product. Would use cort-aid to help with redness, but if after 1-2 weeks not better, return to md.
