Face Anti-Aging UV Moisturizer Allergic Reaction
Hello, after using an anti-aging uv moisturizer on my face I have swelling, itching, very irritated dry skin.  The active ingredients in this product is 3% octisalate, 3% octocrylene and 2% avobenzone.  What can I do to relieve these symptoms?  Any home remedies suggestions?  I don't have health insurance.

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but it sounds like irritant contact dermatitis. Irritant dermatitis, the most common type of contact dermatitis, involves inflammation resulting from contact with acids, alkaline materials such as soaps and detergents, cosmetics, or other chemicals.

Avoid using any lotions and creams over the face for the meantime. Wash your face with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Pat your face dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.

If the irritation persists then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
I hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
