If You Are Dry:

Your prescription(s) may be drying and irritating at first and/or if overused. To avoid, us a small amount on completely dry skin.  If still too dry, moisturize often and decrease prescription use to every other day.  The irritation and dryness is completely normal and will go away with continued use.  Don’t give up!

Compliance:

Prescriptions take up to 3 months of continued use for maximum results.  Be patient and results will come!
