Burning sensation on/around nose
A few months ago I started having intermittent sensations (1-2x/day) of mild burning on my nose and around the edges; sometimes, it goes up a little toward my forehead but usually is confined to the skin on my nose. It comes and goes and lasts just several seconds. I don't have a skin condition (that I know of), the skin is not burned or red, nor does it have any visible signs that something is wrong.
I have had some new health issues lately and believe my immune system is under attack. Since late last year, I have been getting PT treatments for rotator cuff tendinosis/tears, which evolved into tennis elbow, and neither have improved at all after several weeks of physiotherapy. In March I came down with a bad cold, immediately followed by Shingles. On top of all this, I may have angular cheilitis which is persistent cracks in the corners of my mouth. In the past, whenever I had those cracks it was after weeks of stress, but it always disappeared within a few days by taking vitamin B supplements; this time, it disappears after taking the supplements, and flares up again when I stop taking them.
I am 54 and have always been a very healthy person and enjoyed an active lifestyle. I eat well and take no medications, and (as far as I know) have no known allergies. However, I have been under different types of ongoing stress for the past several years.
Back to the burning sensation on my nose --- does anyone know what that could be? I have NOT seen a doctor for it yet.
