I had co2 laser around my mouth and chin for fine lines and some acne scars 11 days ago. I'm still beefy red. I also have bumps like acne from using the aquaphor my Dr. reccommended. This petrolium base type products make me break out. Can you suggest anything to speed the healing process that won't cause me to break out?

..and for anyone else reading this Aveeno moisturizer. I switched from aquaphor to Aveeno post-laser and the breakouts stopped. Jane Boston- what is the name of your doc in boston? would you recommend him/her?
