Over the last year I keep getting tiny red itchy cluster spots on my face, it doesnt look very attractive and feels itchy. I have always had very clear skin (other than rare outbreaks of exzema (eczema)) , I eat well and drink 2 litres of water a day. I have changed skin products to natural products with no perfume, chemicals etc, but no difference. I use to think the cause was my hair touching my face, by I pin that back now and still get them- not as bad though. I've seen the doctor and he has diagnosed it exzema (eczema) and prescribed me hydrochotisone cream, which works ish but they soon return once I stop using it. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? And more importantly how can I cure it? its really getting me down now :-((
I have that same problem... I've had perfect porcelain skin, and then I unexpectedly am having problems with it. I have issues with eczema too, but on my arms. Better than my face I suppose. For one it's not evident, it just looks like hardcore freckles lol. I have a few freckles so it blends well. I usually get outbreaks either on my forehead or scalp, which sucks MAJOR *** because my hair is shaved like a mohawk kind of. Thankfully they have invented make-up. Maybe it could be the hair products you're using; I've noticed that ever since I started using a specific hair spray I've been having these outbreaks, almost as in an allergic reaction. Hmm although you did say that yours are itchy, mine are kind of sore. I don't know, but hoped that helped the slightest bit.
However if you want a treatment in which you asked for, try buying some “Oxy” and put that on it. It usually will clear that up in a few days, IF you keep using it.
Make sure you are washing your face twice a day and using astringent.
[Not saying you don’t but just saying.]
You should reconsult with your dermatologist and talk to him/her about your symptoms coming back again as son as you stop the medication.
Have you tried oral anti-histamine or anti-allergic medications?
Apply calamine lotion at the lesions to help soothe the site and also keep the area clean and wash your face with clear water several times a day. Drinking plenty of water daily and maintaining a healthy diet plan also helps.
