Spring/summer skin allergy?

Last spring I started to get a mild red rash on the sides of my face. It only lasted a few weeks then went away. This spring the same rash has come back but more red and persistent. It’s been with me since end of March. I’ve tried everything: prescription antihistamines, eczema creams, buying a silk pillowcase and washing it daily, staying out of the sun, avoiding pollen as much as possible, cleansing twice daily and moisturising several times a day, everything. Nothing seems to work. It’s really frustrating because I just can’t figure out where this allergy/irritation has come from. Any suggestions?

I had this too. I thought it was an allergy, but it turned out it was just skin irritation.
