Weeping Face! How to treat?

Postby itchynyc on Wed Sep 27, 2017 2:35 pm

Please Help!!! - I'm having a really bad flare up on my face. It's bright red, the skin was raised on my cheeks, and it has broken open on my cheeks, forehead, and temples and it won't stop weeping beads of clear fluid. I'm not sure what the best method is for treatment - does anyone have any recommendations on what to do or products? I've been putting a wet washcloth on it followed by Ceaphil or Avene skin recovery cream, as well as taken a ton of probiotics and turmeric, plus a strong ibuprofen and dranks tons of water but it is still inflamed and red. Nervous that I'm doing something wrong that's making it worse. Any tips?

This sounds like a severe form of rosacea but I can’t be sure without seeing you. Also I am not a dermatologist! You would be best advised to go to your GP for further advice.
