He does have acne. And is face is probably red from something he's using to treat it. Your using Tazorac which is a retinoid and a side effect of that can be redness, dryness, irritation......Are you waiting at least 30 minutes after washing to apply it? You may need to use only every other night? I would really talk to your derm and see what he/she recommends.

Are you waiting the 30 min after washing? Unless your aloe has alcohol in it (and some do) I would say it's most likely irritated. When your skin is irritated to such a point anything and everything will burn.
