How should a person who has put medicinal creams on his face do wudoo’?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I am a girl and I put creams on my face that the doctor prescribed for me, and he said that I should not let water touch it for at least 12 hours. I am a Muslim, praise be to Allah, and I have to do wudoo’, but I am afraid to let water touch the cream on my face. Can I wipe the parts where there is no cream, or what?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If there is a skin condition on the face for which the doctor has prescribed cream to be put on it. and he has said not to let water touch it for several hours so that the cream will remain for medicinal purposes, then in this case you should avoid putting water on those areas when doing wudoo’, and wash the rest of it along with all other parts to be washed in wudoo’, and you can do tayammum instead of washing the face, until there is no longer any need to put this cream on your face. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
