I have adult on-set acne. What happens when you combine it with an allergic reaction which affects the skin on your face? DISASTER!!!
I am currently trying to control my acne using a product that was prescribed by my doctor. Just the other day, I ate something I was allergic to and lo-and-behold, my face became itchy, red and slightly swollen. A few hours later, my skin started shedding!!!! I was shocked at how bad my allergies were affecting my skin, especially since it was just on my face. I immediately had to take anti-histamines in hopes that this would stop my skin from getting worse.
What does my face look like now? There are red patches where there are pimples and there are red patches where I have bad allergies. This means I have red patches on my eyelids, around my lips, even eyebrows. Let’s not forget the non-stop shedding around areas where there are really bad allergies like my eyebrows and lips.
I have stopped applying any lotions or acne products and have replaced this with eczema cream. Have any of you experienced this? What products did you use to help calm down the skin?
