Skin HELP
 
Hi I am at my whits end with my skin right now so thought I would come here to see if anyone can help. I've always had amazing clear skin apart from a little redness around my nose. Around 3 months ago I developed a redness on my chin that appeared to be lots of small spots grouped together. They weren't ***** or itchy or swollen just there. I went to the doctor and he diagnosed it as exzema and proscribed me a steroid cream called daktacort. The cream takes away the redness and reduces but as soon as I wean away from it or stop it it comes back worse! It's now spreading further up my face and getting worse. I don't know what to do some people have suggested it maybe dermititus? I'm a fashion model and it's a huge problem for me to have bad skin ☹️ Any help or advice much appreciated

Lucy,
dermatitis is caused by an allergic reaction. Have you started using anything new? Detergents, makeup, hairspray can even get on your skin..you mentioned you are a fashion model. Its quite possible that the material of something you wore also irritated your skin.,

Eczema can spread. It is a skin condition, not an allergic reaction and it can be frustrating. Usually steroid treatments are the correct cure.

Youll need to see a dermatologist again and get the skin tested for Eczema or allergic reactions to be sure, but in the meantime, I would use very "clean" cleanser. Something like Cetafil..which is not irritating and contains no oils. Stay away from anything with alcohol in it, which can dry you out and irritate further.

This will go away eventully, but in the meantime, steroid cream should help!

You don't want to use anything harsh to make it worse.

Try some gentle soap, mild cream.

Best of luck to you.
