I rubbed this cream around the top of my mouth where there were some little red places. I believe it has burned my mouth in those places. I am ashamed to go out.

If the areas are bumpy and look like a rash, but not yet scaling over, should I continue applying the ...

What can I expect after completing 2 weeks of carac cream use? Will the dark red spots all over my face disappear? I am on day 8 and look bad. Am I supposed to have white bumps that look like blisters? Can I use makeup to cover up? What can I use to stop the burning and dryness?
