I too have a similar problem. back in december 2003 my face got real red, it felt severly sunburned and was itchy. I also developed the same thing on the back of my arms and on my thighs though its mild in comparison to my face. I have gone to my Dr and a few dermatologist and they dont really know what it is. One dermatoligist said it was Rosacea and the other said it was a contact dermatitus. My Dr thinks its a form of eczema. Now i know rosacea doesnt form on other parts of the body so i ruled that out. So i am leaning towars eczema or an allergenic reaction to something. Though i havent any idea as to what it is. My best success in dealing with this has been drinkin 2 cups of Green tea everyday and watching what i eat. Minimal amounts of sugar and yeast. I also take the herb acidophilus. Along with B Vitamins. Also Zinc Oxide applied before bedtime takes down the redness and its only $1.00 per tube so you can scrap the prescriptions cause they dont wotk any better than the Zinc does. I will continue to research the problem and find a cure. I know there is one out there. If you want to know more you can email me at [email protected].
