I've always had extremely oily skin (30 minutes after showering, the oil will be clearly visible on my T-zone). A couple of weeks ago, my nose area started flaking a lot, especially after a shower. So, I decided to put on some moisturizer.
I used a product called "Louis Widmer - Sun Protection Face 30" which claimed to also be a moisturizer.
After 2 days of using it, the sides of my nose started stinging and were really itchy. I stopped using the moisturizer. However, the stinging and itching continued, along with lots of flaking. This continued for a couple of days, and then it got really red. The itching has stopped somewhat, after putting Tea Tree Oil on it. I also tried Milk Of Magnesia.
My skin is still red and flaky, however. What is it? And what can I do to get rid of the red patches? The patches are really red, and they seems to be getting bigger, it's like a half circle around my nose sides.
Also, I'm starting a low dose accutane course (10mg/day), I hope this would help.
