Completed four-weeks of 1xdaily on the face. Reviewer who observed that week three is the worst was almost correct. First two weeks, nothing but a little redness and slight burning.

I used this medicine on my face. Side effects of skin erosion and tenderness are super painful. Redness,scabbing and overall unsightliness are overwhelming and makes me ultra self conscious.
