rosacea
 
I have a rash on my face that keeps recurring . It is always in the same place. It itches and it is raised. It resembles hives. I saw a dermatologist and she was not sure what it was. Could this be rosacea, or is it just an allergic reaction? I don't want to look like this forever!

I would try plain old vaseline as a moisturizer after cleansing with a very mild cleanser. I say vaseline because it does not have any other ingredients that will burn the skin. You can relplenish during the day. I would try this for a week and see if it helps.
