Dry, Sensitive skin

Postby jodieb36 on Thu Nov 23, 2017 6:48 pm

Hi, I have had sensitive skin on my face for a few years which I managed by using products like simple skincare etc. My problem has become a lot worse lately. When I have a bad flare up my skin feels like it is burning and it stings. It usually lasts 2-4 days then subsides. I've tried everything I can think of but nothing has helped. Could you suggest anything and/or what this is. Thanks jodie

HI Jodie,
This either sounds like a type of dermatitis/eczema or rosacea.
I would make an appointment to see your doctor and discuss how to move forward.
Best wishes.
