rash on face

I was cooking and had grease pop up and hit me in two small spots on my face by my nose and mouth.  A few weeks later it turned into more like a rash on my face and it is growing.  I have tried several products and its burns sometimes.  A few times I thought it was getting itchy but then not really.  I need advice on how to make this rash go away. It looks like several red spots around one side of my nose and beside to below my mouth.  I can't understand it, I have kept it clean and tried to keep it under control, but nothing is working.  Please help me.  Thanks Mary

Hello,

I cannot confirm anything without examination but it sounds like irritant contact 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 pls get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
