Hi Doctor,

Thankyou so much for the quick response.

Just had a follow up question.

When using this cream at night do i need to apply it only on the affected area or can i use it on entire face, since i had acne on cheeks too and there are small light spots on cheek itself but they are not sunburn spots like the one i have on forehead.

Lastly, any sunscreen with spf 30 of spf 50 i can use right ?

Brief Answer:
Apply on entire face

Detailed Answer:
Hello
You can apply the cream on entire face.
Yes any sunscreen with spf 50 is fine.
If you still get acne lesions then use sunscreen with spf 30 as spf 50 would be thicker.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
