swollen, warm to touch, and itchy skin following use of sunscreen
10 days after using sun screen on my neck and face [and being in the sun for a few hours] my skin is still itchy, swollen and also appears to be warm to the touch. My skin get extremly itchy when warm-hot water is put on it [i.e. a shower]. The symtomes are still present 10 days later but have been gradually reducing each day since initally applied.
Note: it is possible that the sunscreen used was a year or two old... are there expirery dates of such products that might be the problem?
