Face burns from lotion

So I started my accutane treatment last week and after I wash my face, I put on lotion with SPF 30 and my face burns for like 5-6 minutes.

I can deal with the burn, but will it damage my face?

Lotion shouldn't burn your face, so I'd experiment with some other brands until you find one that works for you. A lot of people like Cetaphil, though I personally don't (too greasy on me). I really like the Olay line for moisturizers. Just make sure you pick one that is simple (ie. gentle), preferably for sensitive skin, and fragrance-free to limit your chances of having a reaction!
