Need Advice- Sensitive Skin Not Healing!

Desperate for product advice!

I’m dealing with perioral dermatitis and am on 2 months of antibiotics. 
The issue I’m having is my skin WONT heal. I have scabs from the rash around my mouth that are still painful and bright red from weeks ago!

I tried doing the “soap only” thing as advised by my dermatologist, but I swear it’s making my skin worse. It’s so painful! 
At this point I think my skin needs a good product, it’s so dry and miserable! I’m willing to try anything. Does anyone have a good recommendation??

Re: Need Advice- Sensitive Skin Not Healing!

Have you tried la Roche posay? I had a really bad flare once, I had to use a prescription cortisone cream, my skin was red, itchy, peeling and it felt very uncomfortable, I used their milk cleanser and the toilerane moisturizer just til my skin got better and within days I was able to use other products ! My was looking good and healthy again, got compliments on it

The #first aid beauty ultra repair cream is really great for dry skin. I don’t know if it will help with healing or if it good to put it on open cuts, but it is a great formula for moisturizing dry skin/eczema.
