Hi -

It depends on what the redness/rash is - dermatitis, excema, seborrhea, rosacea, etc. There are many different topicals and antibiotics for each situation. Your Derm. will know when they examine it and ask you a few questions.

Good luck.

Hi. I merged all your redness related posts together.

To answer your question: yes, you should use the moisturizer your derm gave you/suggested you use. ...Why wouldn't you?

Your derm appears to think (judging by what's recommended) that your redness is due to either dryness or some form of irritation. A moisturizer will help both of those.

Another thing you can do at night when and if you don't use the Neutrogena with SPF 45, is use a very thin film of vaseline petrolatum jelly on your reddened areas (not just the red parts, but the adjacent areas, too). That will help protect your skin and help with inflammation and dryness.

Washing with warm (not hot) water will also help red skin. A final cool water splash will also help the redness.
