And lots of inflamation in my ... Show Full Comment

    I can't really give a review about the effectiveness of veltin as I've only been using it about two weeks. But what I will say is that my face burns like crazy. It burns to wash my face after using it and when I wake up in the morning and wash my face it is very sore and extremely sensitive. Even applying moisturizer is painful. I was prescribed veltin for bedtime use and finacea for the m ... Show Full Comment
