My face  is very red since 3 days ago after hair removal when I use Fluocinolone  it disappears  since last night It's  also very dry what should I do?

How did you...: remove the hair? Did you use a hair removing chemical? These are not to be used on the face, this my be why your face is red and swollen. If you had hair removal by a doctor, sometimes you will have redness and swelling for a few days. You should NOT be using fluocinolone on your face. Try cool compresses to reduce swelling, and a moisturizing lotion. See a doctor if no better in few days. ...Read more
