Dear romy_209:

You have irritation to Retin A. You should see a dermatologist or at least apply OTC hydrocortisone twice daily as well as a soothing antiinflammatory cream such as XeraCalm.  In the future you may want to use a #Retinol cream with green tea and reserveratrol to prevent this from happening.
