So last month or so I posted here on acne.org and at that time I only had 2 pimples and only a bit of dry skin and flakes only around my nose, that was fine and whatever.
Then last week, my forehead broke out in a TON of small red bumps and a few big zits on my chin, around my mouth, in and outside of my ears.
There are so many flakes on my face. I literally could not handle it and I took a washcloth filled with cold water and scrubbed all the flakes off my face. I'm not even kidding, I sat in front of the mirror and waited 5 minutes after because my face was red, and guess what, flakes started appearing again.
I put lotion on, my face just sucks it right up and more flakes appear. I spend literally 40 minutes scrubbing flakes off my face in the morning, putting more lotion, scrubbing, more flakes appear, more lotion, feels dry still, more lotion..
I have no idea what to do. Why does my skin feel do damn dry even though I'm slathering a generous layer of Olay with spf15 lotion on everyday?! And the flakes?! What the hell am I supposed to do? I'm going to the doctor Thursday for my skin because I think I have eczema on my face possibly because that's what my mother thinks it is and also to see what I should do about the zits.
I'm still curious if anyone else has this problem though with the flakes and the peeling even though I'm using lotion and only cetaphil cleanser as my entire routine!
( also I'm really nervous about going to the dermatologist for the first time. What happens? I'm so scared omg )
