Stinging and Burning (spider vein formation) after retinoic acid

This start after i clear my face from acne..


First time I using retonoic acid, actually small amount (less than recomendation) of RA makes my facial skin very sensitive to uv (only feel little bit itchy on the same night when i use it).. i used it maybe about 2 month


one night, i try to use it as much as recommendation amount.. but in the next day i found that my face feel stinging and burning that i never feel before.. i suggest it because of sun exposure.. i stop using all product, just moisturize and re apply sunscreen.. even i cant wash my face with mild cleanser because it still sting my face.after 2 days, my face feel less sting and burning..


but i realize that on stinging area, i can find a spider vein formation.. i suggest it caused by sun damage.. anyone have some different idea?


and i still on recovery from this irritated skin, may be you can give me advice what should i DO and DONT for my facial skin?

Es muy raro que te pase eso con una dosis pequeña de ácido retinoico, me temo a qué usted es alérgica al ácido retinoico, te recomendaría que pruebes otros productos, en mi caso, una sola gota de peróxido de benzoilo, hace que mi cara se enrojezca y me pique por 1 semana, prueba otras alternativas, incluso puedes probar adapaleno al 0.1 que es más suave que el ácido retinoico
