Fatigue, sleepiness and dry mouth are the main side effects of this drug. Drying of your skin could pave the way for other skin conditions to erupt, rather than an adverse effect of the Cetrazine. If I understand your report correctly you have already stopped taking that drug and this is probably a good idea.
If you got the Cetrazine from a doctor or his nurse, I suggest you give them a call and describe what has happened. And do continue to use a moisturizing cream to treat your dry skin, but remember that any moisturizing product you put on your skin could act as an irritant or allergen and could actually be responsible for the “red colored pimples.”
