Slight Burning Sensation - No Obvious Causes?

3 posts in this topic

Yesterday I developed some strange red patches between my eyes and either side of my mouth. They're not really aggravated and bright red, but you can tell they're slightly affected. It also feels like a bit of sun burn, but I've not been exposed to sun this weekend.

What kind of treatments can I use to calm and soothe these areas? Is E45 an ideal cream to use?

Thank you!

Are you using BP, or on the regimen? If you are then that would be the cause, when I used BP, my inner cheeks would suffer the worst from what you described.

I have not used BP in almost 2 weeks now, and the redness hasn't really changed, I'm using a self tanner morning and aha night and there is not much difference.


New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.

Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.

///

1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.

New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

Nope. I'm not using any medication, and haven't for a while. The last week or so my face has been fine bar a few spots, but it's bearable and certainly not worthy of medication.

These random red patches occur quite frequently though unfortunately, and it takes a while for them to return to normal. This time (as in the ones i've got this weekend) are a little more irritable than normal, and as I said before feel a little like sunburn, but it's not.
