Thank you for asking about your Dr. Alvins skin kit.

  • It is likely that the kojic acid is drying your skin and needs to be adjusted.
  • If your skin hurts when products are applied, stop using them until you have seen your prescribing doctor.

Unfortunately without knowing the ingredients in the product you are using as it appears they are a proprietary blend, it would be impossible to give you a full answer. However I would recommend that you speak directly with the physician who is providing the products to you and have them go over the ingredients to determine if you are having a reaction to one of them. Best wishes.
