What's wrong with my skin/

How come the skin on my face sometimes gets dry red and flaky? It occurs randomly then goes away just to come back. It doesn't itch but it does burn when I apply lotion.

Hello,
These symptoms can be due to contact dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis. 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 please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
