Hi. My face is covered in red blister like lumps. My face is extremely dry and these lumps are also cracking. The lumps are filled with pus and cover my cheeks, nose and chin. They actually look as if I have had boiling water poured over my face. I've been told it was rosacia but any treatments I have been given for this just tend to cause swelling and burning. Any help would be great. It's causing me to not want to leave the house and with 4 young children this is proving difficult. Stress seems to bring it out even worse. I'm 30 yo and healthy.
Sorry to hear of your plight. I do sympathise as I did experience a similar problem some years ago.
You do not say which medication that you tried.
Have you ever been prescribed with Rosex? This is a metronizadole cream and I found it worked extremely well on my skin and saw an improvement after a couple of applications.
I suggest that when you see your doctor ask for a prescription for a very high factor sun block as well as the Rosex (if you haven't had that). You will need to keep out of the sun and wind as these may be aggravating your facial skin as well as the stress. Don't use any soaps as they are drying. Gently wash your face with water and gently pat dry.
Also keep a diary of what you are eating as this may help you find a trigger food. If you are taking any medications to lose weight, stop taking them as they deplete the essential fat vitamins that keep your skin healthy. Or take a vitamin supplement, especially Vitamin D.
Your doctor can also prescribe a moisturising emollient for you to wash your face with as well as apply it to give it the moisture it needs. I found Dermol 400 was OK.
You have found that stress makes the condition worse, so you will have to learn some relaxation techniques to keep your stress levels to a minimum, easier said than done, I know, with 4 children.
As a home remedy, you could try applying natural set yogurt to one side of your face in the evening to see if that helps to settle down the inflammation. It is also very cooling.
