Red patch on throat

I suffer with Rosacea and Urticaria and I have a bright red patch appear on my throat, which is itchy and dry at times. Would you know what this could be? Many thanks, Anne

Re: Red patch on throat

Dear Anne
The patch on your throat is unlikely to be rosacea, which is generally confined to the face only. Urticaria generally comes and goes, so it sound like this new patch of red skin is a new different area of skin inflammation. Is this area itchy? Is it dry? is the patch spreading to elsewhere on your body? Have you used any new cosmetics? I suggest you contact your GP for skin examination (which maybe via video consult) for a diagnosis. In the meantime, do use plant of emollients for washing and moisturising and avoid soap and cosmetic washes. I hope this helps for now. All the best.
