So i've got some weird rash thing going on.... The whole lower half of my face (starting around my nostrils, moving down below my chin and jaw line, out around my ears and my ears as well) is FREAKING itchy. Insanely itchy, but painful at the same time. I can feel the skin pulling when i talk or smile, and if I touch it or wash my face (just water) it stings. I think it's a continuation of the same rash I had on my lips- where they were insanely chapped, then the rash moved to around my lips and itched, stung, and peeled, and now it's just migrating.
My skin feels dry- to me, anyway- and just ever so slightly pink. The skin feels slightly raised, to me at least. My ears look pink and maybe a tiny bit swollen. After looking at me really carefully my husband could tell that I wasn't itchy on my forehead since it's the normal colour but that could just be because I'm rubbing at my face a lot.
I took an antihistamine last night, since it feels like the time I suddenly developed a skin allergy to a laundry detergent, but didn't notice any difference. I haven't changed detergents or changed how I eat in a long time. The only thing that has helped is when I liberally slather my face in coconut oil.
Any idea what's going on? Anyone else get strange rashes?
