I have acne and i went to my dermatologist for treatment. I'm using it daily, but my face is starting to burn when i apply the products. Solution?
Acne medications: If after a certain amount of time, the face burns after application of acne medications, it may be either an allergic or an irritant reaction to the medication.

If you are not having regular periods, work on this with your physician. If you cannot take isotretinoin, the oral contraceptive pill and maybe sourinolactone are considerations. ...Read more

ACNE: The birth control pills are treating the hormonal component of your acne. Those deep painful bumps that hurt before they come to the surface.
