Hi, so I get itchy red rashes on my face occasionally - usually forehead and cheeks - cheek bone below eyes is the worst. They start like a tingling, then come up red like an allergic reaction whether I leave them alone or touch them (trying not to itch), it doesn't matter which. While it's red they still itch, feel really warm (like it's been bitten), then they'll go away on their own. It's really odd Sometimes they stay like that for 20 mins, other times it's a few hours. After that it either goes completely or stays a bit flushed for 24 hours depending on how "itchy it felt". Antihistamines, non steroidal, and natural anti itch creams have never worked so I usually just let it run it's course.
This happens about 2 or 3 times a month for about 2ish days. Recently (currently) it's been about a week. I've never worked out what's causing it. I already have changes in my diet from about 5 years ago; reduced milk, reduced gluten, reduced sugar, no caffeine. I don't wear makeup and use all natural face and body moisturisers; this hasn't changed. I have endometriosis which does show a link to inflammatory conditions. I've been to the doctors and he suggests it's rosacea (doesn't know about the endo) so antihistamines wouldn't work anyway. He says they can give creams if it's rosacea, I'm due to go back Monday if it's still there, it is currently. What creams are they? As they're probably synthetic, is there anything I can put on that's natural that could help during a flare-up to stop it tingling?
