Help, Dr is no use, mystery skin condition

I wonder if anyone has experienced the same as me. In the last days of January I suddenly developed a pinkish rash under my bottom lip. I left it in the hopes it would go away again but instead it got worse, going to red instead of pink and flaking. Not just tiny dust size flaking but big flakes.

After four weeks I tried cutting out the newest thing in my diet, coconut, but it was the same so at six weeks I gave in and saw my dr. He gave me emollient but all it did was stop the flaking.

Went back last week to him and he said he doesn't know what it is. Gave me hydrocortisone cream 1% to use on the rash. Only that made it the itchiest it's ever been and for my whole face to flush. The rash now is very itchy and it's started to spread to around both nostrils.

I 've been a vegan since May 2018 and only use Simple skincare products on my face. I did wonder if it was stress as my mum died unexpectedly on January 14th, a week or so before the rash first appeared.
