What to do to let skin "heal"?
I don't know what I did or didn't do, but my skin is going nuts
It's a red scaled mess around my mouth to cheek area. There are tiny "pimple like" bumps and they won't go away. I don't know what to do to start over. I have to wash my face, but should I just wash it with water and thats it until it heals? Or use Dove soap. I'm on an antibiotic now, my derm thinks it might be some sort of dermatitis (though they are so booked they couldn't get me in till Aug and I called 3weeks ago!!!.) I've been taking it now for 2 days. I haven't used retin A on it or anything like that in weeks. It looks like the skin is trying to heal and grow back. I've taken MultiVitamins, Prim Rose Oil, Back on the BC Pill (which I know the antibiotic makes is not effective) and it seems in vain.
I know hydrocortisone can thin your skin, so I'm not sure if putting that on is ok.
I was thinking neosporan or A&D Ointment.
I dunno I'm desperate and out of options. I need a new derm, she didn't inform my anything about retin A micro or retin a that my skin would freak like this or I'd never used it in the summer.
I was going to try to take a picture, but it seems to not really show up on any setting
