Skinoren (azelaic acid) on scabs?


I mostly have non-inflamed acne but do also get whiteheads and painful cysts occasionally.

Currently I cleanse with a scrub and have just started using azelaic acid afterwards (I'm VERY allergic to BP).

My question is, I have a few scabs on my face where previous spots have been picked (I know... :confused: ) or got out of control. Will it be okay to use the azelaic acid on these areas?

Thank you :)

Yes, its fine to apply skinoren over these areas. Just be gentle when you apply it and only use a thin layer of the medication.
