Please can I ask for some advice.
I have eczema on my cheeks and occasionally my neck and when it's bad my cheeks are bright red, itch and feel like they're on fire. It flares up when I'm stressed but for the past year it's become more frequent. I was diagnosed with asthma last December and I've noticed that my cheeks are worse when my asthma is not under control. Does this sound familiar?
I work in a large hospital and often get comments about my red cheeks. I'm very conscious of them and many people mistake it for embarrassment. I'll admit I easily get embarrassed but when they pass comment, even if just in fun, I feel uncomfortable and go even redder.
Are the red cheeks and asthma connected? Have you any suggestions as to what I can use on my face? I've had eumovate but was told it's steroid-based and so thins the skin.
Thanks very much.
