Glycolic acid cream 6%
I have dark spots on my face so my dermatologist prescribed me glycolic acid but after applying the cream my face gets a little ichy. Should I stop using it? Or it is supposed to feel a little ichy?

Try mixing it with your daily moisturizer and apply a thin layer only at night time. Wash off after one hour initially , then after few days wash off after 2 hours and gradually increase the contact time likewise.
