Facial skin problem, please help.
The skin in which I've been applying acne products (topicals prescribed by my derm) is now different then normal, everyday skin. It seems like the skin builds up over time or is reproducing quicker then normal skin and by doing this, the excess skin irritates my skin underneath and causes inflamed, small white heads. For example, if I don't wash with anything but water for a week and only touch my face with water, nothing else, no hands, nothing, then there will be so much excess skin on my face that you'll be able to see little pieces of it sticking out. And then when I go to rub it off my face will become super irritated and red, so I'm not very sure what to do about this problem. Also I think my face is semi-dryed out because right after washing everyday with a gentle face wash it feels tight and my lips become super chapped. Maybe it's because I don't touch my face at all? Are you suppose to be able to rub your face, because whenever I do it becomes really red and irritated. Since the begining I thought you weren't suppose to touch your face at all and maybe thats why I'm having this problem. I can touch other parts of my face where I have not applied any acne topicals in the past and there is no irritation or redness at all. Then again, these areas of my face do not have excess skin on them. So if you can try to understand what I'm saying.. I could use a little help on what to do. I've been trying a exfoliating scrub but it does not seem to remove all the skin and leave my face smooth and soft. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (If you think you could help but need to know a litlte more information that I might have left out, please just ask)
