Question: Face is red, warm, and itchy


 JJRS - Wed Jan 04, 2006 12:35 am

Doctors & Nurses

Hello, I'm a 28 yr old female currently experiencing discomfortness on my face. Today is the second day of red itchy skin along my cheeks and chin. I took Benadryl lastnight hoping that it would go away (thinking it may be an allergic reaction to something), and went to Walgreens today and purchased Aveeno Anti-Itch cream (1% hydrocortisone). I've applied it to my face but the warm itchy sensation is still there.

What are your thoughts on this? Any creams or medication I could use?

Allergies maybe?

Please help! I have this sun-burned look that I'd like to get rid off.

Thanks in advance
Janice

User avatar Dear JJRS,

I would recommend finding a PH balanced soap for sensitive skin and getting your skin balance back in order. I think you should stop using any anti-acne creams until your face recovers some. If you have a licensed aestheticians or any Dermatologists that will give you a free consultation maybe they would give you more insight into your rash.
