Is Ok If I Use A&d Petrolium Ointment On My Face That Has Major Acne Scare&under My Eyes Because Its So Dry?

Answer

Hello Nana

Have you used this product before? Does it cause any irritation? You want to make sure any product you use on your face does not cause an adverse reaction. You may want to test a small patch of your skin to make sure.

You may find this article on treating dry skin and acne helpful.

Here too is information about treating dry skin from the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology.

There are a lot of other products out there specifically formulated to treat dry skin caused by acne scars like Bio-oil scar treatment. It is pretty much trial and error to find the right moisturizer or ointment for you. A dermatologist could give you the best suggestions on this.

Thank you for your question.
