Morning rash on face/neck. Feels like sunburn

In the last month, I've woken up and noticed a red, blotchy rash on my face and neck.  It feels like a sunburn, but it's not.  My face is hot, and it stings to put on make-up.  Does anyone know what this might be and should I be concerned?

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.
