my skin is itchy, stings, inflamed, and in bad shape.

Should i smother it in moisturizer (cetaphil, NOT alpha-hydroxy), or just leave it alone as much as possible???

Firstly why?? have you had an allergy, got sunburnt....I understand all the other symptons being from acne ...but not itchy... what has caused your skin to be itchy? used any new products?

if you think it might be an allergy do a search of allergic contact dermatitis on google. If in any doubt go to a doctor. If you want to do something you could use a hydrocortisone cream lightly on your face...but not around your nose and only for a day or two...check the instructions on the packet. That would relieve some of the inflamation and redness.

If you think your problem is cause by extreme dryness or from sunburn a very gentle moisturiser could be soothing.
