I have had a stinking cold and although it's now going, the skin on my face is blotchy, tight, dry and sore. I've also got lots of tiny little spots/bumps. How can I revive my skin? It's really sore sad

Think I'd use very little while your skin is sore. Perhaps visit your local pharmacy to get something to apply to get it feeling normal again, and then use some gentle, non-allergenic products initially before building up to some richer face creams to rehydrate it properly. Hope you're feeling 100% soon.

La Roche Posay is a great brand and has ranges for all types if skin. It's sold in larger Boots branches I think. You will find something gentle and soothing from them.

I hate the cold with a passion. I can't believe it has got so cold so early this year sad

Something like LaRochePosay.... Very gentle but emollient. I used a Eurcarin product last winter to "buffer" my face from the elements. It was pretty good but can't remember which one.

Keep an eye on the bumps. My shingles started with sore lumpy skin.

Thank you, I will go to boots later and look for those products. Anything soothing would be good right now!
