Red Burning Face

Over the last 2 weeks my cheeks have been really red and burny.  What could be causing this?  Could this be an allergic reaction to something?  I am also recently getting over a sinus infection and have been using Nasonex nasal spray the last couple of days to get rid of the lingering congestion. I am seeing a doctor next week.  Any advice for what I can put on my face to get the red and burning out?

i can say, maybe, if it hurts dip it in hot water, like not boiled hot but burning hot until
more pain then soaking in cold or a napkin with cool water. if it doesn't hurt i would say...some sunscreen or some ice, .. if you don't treat it well i might say surgery because i dont know wut it looks like or lotion treatments

Wash your face in luke warm water as HOT will dry out your skin more. Then apply Aveeno Lotion to your face. It may burn a bit when you first put it on but, the burn will subside and the oatmeal in the Aveeno will help ease your face and bumps.  I'm thinking maybe your are slightly allergic to the Nasonex?
