I have had a bright red face and neck for 6 weeks - very itchy and dry. Close friends (one a nurse) have racked our brains as to what caused it. Nothing in my house has changed: Always have had Cats, never use face makeup, and use non bio laundry liquid. I always have had dry skin and used either nivea cream or lancome's nutrix. I stopped the Nutrix and just used the 50/50 cream the doc have me with antihistamines. Face was aflame and really itchy.
At last the Doc gave me Prednolone and the itch has stopped and the dryness is much better.
I would love suggestions as to the cause. Doc says allergy testing not possible as we don't know, what it is! Huh?! Doc said asthmatics just get allergies. I also have emphasema as my main respiratory problem
