long story short, I used a face mask about a year ago, and I seriously think it gave me chemical burns. it burned so bad I had to take it off, and my face was horrible and raw for months.
anyways, it started to heal, but then a small red bump (that I thought was a zit) appeared on my cheek under my eye. I'm not sure if the face mask and the rash I have are related or not, but I figured I would throw that in there.
the "zit" on my face developed into a rash, which I thought was healing, but then it developed into a single, circular, slightly raised, thick, and sometimes itchy patch of dry, red, flaky skin.
it is impossible to cover with makeup, because it just makes it look even flakier.
but without makeup it is extremely noticeable and red.
sometimes it hurts, but only if I poke it with my nail.
I have no idea what it is. It simply will not go away.
I've been washing my face quite a lot lately,
I tried putting alcohol on it,
and then aquaphor for dryness and healing.
it will not go away.
it doesn't bleed or leak any type of fluid, or anything like that.
but i am extremely worried because I searched skin rash and got a bunch of pages about skin cancer.
I don't think it is skin cancer though.
also... I am worried that it could possibly be the start of some type of flesh eating disease from bread mold
(as I found some old bread, and accidently inhailed some as I was tying up the trash bag I put it in.
idk it could be anything.
sorry this is so long. I just figured the more details i gave the more helpful it might be if someone else had this problem.
please help me!!
