Face irritation

hello,

I have a problem with the skin on my face since 2-3 days ago. I never had any problems and my skin was pretty fine dor a 20 years old girl. Suddenly some sort of irritation appeared, it's not red but it's like I have a million litle swellings on my skin, especially in the chin area, i have a slight feeling of tightening and maybe a little stinging (I just relaise the disconfort). I would go to a doctor but it's christmas time so for 2 weeks (at least) I have no hope of finding any available. Can you give me an advice?

Hello,

I cannot confirm anything without examination but it sounds like irritant contact dermatitis. Irritant dermatitis, the most common type of contact dermatitis, involves inflammation resulting from contact with acids, alkaline materials such as soaps and detergents, cosmetics, or other chemicals.

Avoid using any lotions and creams over the face for the meantime. Wash your face with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Pat your face dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves.If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.

If the irritation persists then pls get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
