Hi. This is an allergic reaction and a similar thing happened to me when i used Dr. Murad products. Buy some gentle cleanser such as Eucerin or Roche-Posay to use until your face is no longer sensitized.
Your mum is right, an anti-histamine may be indicated. See your doctor who may prescribe an anti-histamine like Piriton and some hydrocortizone cream. Hydrocortizone cream is only indicated for use on the face when prescribed by a doctor.
If you develop any other symptoms especially difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, tongue or fingers or closing of the airways seek medical help immediately. Allergic reactions can be dangerous. I was admitted to hospital for the day and treated with I.V piriton and I.V hydrocortizone.
In future always do a small test patch when using a new product and wait 48 hours to check for a reaction before using the product on a larger area. When you are feeling better, speak to your doctor about a better acne treatment for you. Maybe an oral one instead of a topical one? x

started using cortizone, creme then ointment
no change severe itching and reddness.
strange areas of outbreak. anyone experience this and what did you do?
Shower thoroughly to ensure all the product is removed from your body. As large areas are affected it may be impractical to use a topical lotion. Take an anti-histamine like Piriton, available from the pharmacist.
If things do not improve, or if you develop any other symptoms such as swelling or trouble breathing seek medical assistance.
I purchased this product as well and I think it works great, however I keep waking up with puffy eyes... to the point where it is hard to open them. Could this be an allergic reaction as well?
