Just that really. Broken out particularly on my eye area and my usual moisturisers burn now. At home I have nivea soft, olay 2 in 1 with serum. Okay dry skin night cream, soap and glory, benefit one in a blue pot and clinique dramatically different. All have worked well until the flare up but now sting and burn .
I have other patches on my legs and those are soithed by aveeno cream but ive never had a break out on my face before and aveeno seems too heavy for my skin.
I had Roaccutane a few years ago for my very oily skin. It made my my skin so dry, both corners of my mouth cracked & I wasn't able to open it properly. The only thing that helped without stinging was Eucerin. Hope you find something that helps!
Try a light vit e cream for the day. Body shop sell an oil which works really fast to clear the problem up if left on over night! I have severe eczema and oily skin and this is the only thing that dosent set me off! Can not do scented products at all!
The only thing that works for me is hair back and loads and I mean loads of epaderm, hydromol or aqueous cream. Like a continuous face mask for all day and night if you can. Keep re applying it even if its every hour.
No makeup for as long as possible, or limit it to areas not affected and basic mascara. Stay away from powder. Then keep putting on very simple cream numerous times a day on affected areas for at least a week/fortnight.
Once it's under control Aveeno day and night and again limited makeup. Also watch your diet and try to keep hair off your face! Conditioner and shampoo left on hair can irritate and prolong healing.
