Very dry, scaly facial skin

Postby calyxa1964 on Wed Nov 22, 2017 1:40 pm

I suffer from patches of red skin, initially its just red and itchy but then can take days / weeks to heal - I often scratch it raw at night (despite taking antihistimines) and have found the only 'cure' to be steroid creams (not great I know) I think allergies make it worse and have tried to stop using products with parabens and sulphates (have found they make it worse) - is there anything else that anyone has tried that works?

(most tly this is on my face but can be anywhere especially in my hair or on hands)

Hi there,

Why not try asking a British Skin Foundation expert in an upcoming clinic?

It's also worth visiting your GP if your symptoms persist.

Hope that helps,
