A small playtime afterwards can use up any residual energy, a calming bath if it's that night, a story, perhaps another feed, then bed. If you like to sing, then do that.

Try replacing your retinoic acid with benzoyl peroxide; if you cannot tolerate this either, or if it does not keep you clear, you will need prescription-strength medication from your physician.
