Burning/Stinging sensation when applying Sudocrem and moisteriser

    I wonder if anyone can help me.

    I was applying some Sudocrem and moisturiser to my face last night and had a painful stinging sensation on the skin below my left eye/just above my left cheekbone. It stings like I've put product into a cut, but there's no cuts on my face.

    The stinging lasts for a minute or two (painfully) and then I can still feel it for a while afterwards.

    I don't suppose anyone's had experience of this weird pain and can tell me what it is. I'll be going to a pharmacy or something anyway.

    Thanks.

    Are you applying sudocrem all over your face?

    This will be to do with the fact sudocrem isn't supposed to go on the face and is actually harmful to it.

    It's usually where your skin is irritated anyway, applying anything on top of it will cause further irritation. I use sudo religiously on my face, clears up any breakouts in a day or so but have experienced that burning sensation a few times. Just clean it off with cold water and don't apply anything else to that area for a few days, just water.

    Thank you. I figured that's what it was and not the Sudocrem itself as it was happening with all products that I used (moisturiser, under-eye cream, etc.). I'll just keep away from that area for a few days.

    Turns out that it was the Epiduo cream I'd been using for my acne. The doctor changed the prescription for me this morning.

    Hi just letting everyone know that you can use sudocrem on the face as it is used for acne which it says on the tub I would advise only to use it a maximum of 3 times a week on your face or if u are using it to treat acne and need to use it more than that just apply a thin layer over the spot and not all over the face x

    Why are you putting it on your face anyway?!?

    It's used for acne, it actually says it on the tub.
    Although saying that I've only ever put it directly on spots, I've never heard of anyone rubbing it all into their skin.

    Just because you CAN put it on acne, doesn't make it a good idea. It is a really antiquated treatment, there are much better options now.

    :dontknow: it's always worked really well for me and other people I've spoke to, just as good as some other more expensive on-spot treatments I have.

    I am not talking about spending more money, but science has moved on from this in the last 82 years and there are better options now.

    Do you have anything to back up this statement? Considering all doctors I speak to still use BMI which was devised in between 1830-1850 and is still used religiously then I'd at least like to hear your evidence for making statements like this
