... liberally! My skin is unbearable without it. I'm going out of my mind with the itching and burning. Is it ok to help the dead thick layers of slimy skin come off? Today it's showing all new blistery looking bumps that haven't been there previously. Very itchy. Was wondering if it was because of the dead skin that has been coming off and the new skin is just raw and vulnerable? Is there anything better to be putting on my skin? It's my entire face and chest and they are unsightly. Has anybody used a topical lidocaine or anything that has helped with the pain and itching?
