It was a relatively thin layer but I spread it a bit on my chin. Surprisingly, I didn't get any side effects like others have but then again, it was a thin layer. Is it safe to use?

Does anyone know if Azelaic acid feeds yeast since it is a by-product of yeast?

It is a by product of yeast. But it's not feeding bad yeast on your skin or anything. It is antimicrobial and antifungal.

I see, thanks you're very helpful! I'll continue using it and hopefully I won't get burned like everyone else is saying.

I only felt burned by it when I was using very harsh, stripping cleansers and washing my face twice a day. Since I learned that washing your face multiple times a day is not only unnecessary but can be harmful, and switched to a gentle cleanser (CeraVe), I did not experience any irritation with Finacea.
