Broke out in facial stress acne. after popping whiteheads cleaned face with 50% rubbing alcohol, now my entire face is red; did I burn my skin?!?!

No harm done: Next time you suspect something like this will happen, start up with a salicylic acid face wash as tolerated, or topical benzoyl peroxide if you have it. Rubbing alcohol isn't a good idea in this sort of situation -- it hurts your tissue more than it does the bacteria -- soap and water is much better for clearing the debris that gives the bacteria an advantage. Your physician's a resource. ...Read more

Let's put it this way- if something were to happen to the baby, even if it had nothing to do with the cream, you will probably always beat yourself up for it, thinking you were to blame. Why take the risk? ...Read more

Try this: Retinoic acid instead of or in addition to. It's more likely to cause de-differentiation of your sebaceous glands.
