Hi there. Thank you for your question. The problem with many over-the-counter lotions is that they contain perfumes which, can sensitise the skin, especially if the area is then exposed to sunlight. I’m going to suggest for the time being that we just get your skin some protection before doing anything else. You need to get yourself a good sunblock and apply this everyday over your arms and legs (nothing else to be used). I would do this for at least a month. What I would suggest is after a month, get yourself the Skin Medica Body Lotion and apply this twice a day but when you use it in the morning put sunblock over it. You will have to continue with this for at least 3 months. If the area then needs more “active” treatment, we can take it from there, but we must first get than sensitivity and discomfort under control before we do anything else. If you need help in sourcing these products, please just contact any of our Skin Renewal Branches and we’ll happily assist you.
