Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.

Yes you should continue using it. The skin reaction will usually start within one day of starting treatment and may get worse for the first week, but the skin will then typically heal within two weeks when treating areas on the face or scalp, and within four weeks when treating the trunk or limbs.

Let me know if you have more questions.
