Sensitive skin on one side of face

Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive skin on one side of face


Avatar m tn Hello so a couple months ago I tried combatting my acne with some cream the dermatologist gave me and it ended up drying my skin. I began to use vanicream as a moisturizer after that and my face dryness was controllable. Over time it got worse and now I over washed my face and it just looks a little irritated and on my left side if my cheek by my eye there is a burning feeling. My skin doesn't look dry and is not flaky. I am wondering if my skin is dehydrated or not?
Avatar f tn Acne on only one side of the face, especially on the lower jaw, is probably do to sleeping with that side of your face on the pillow. Warmth and moisture (sweat and/or drool) will increase bacteria growth on your skin thereby increasing the chance of getting more pimples/acne. Try to sleep with your mouth closed and facing uphill to keep the drool inside your mouth. Change your pillow case as often as possible (every night if you can). Wash your face every morning as soon as you get up.
Avatar m tn I have this strange rash on the side of my face that starts at about the top of my cheek and ends at my chin. It appears like small, infrequent pimples but when I touch them they don't hurt and they don't have pus or go away. It's also very dry especially around my mouth on that side even though I've been exfoliating and moisturising heaps. It started at the start of the year on my chin and now it's all the way up to the top of my cheek near my hairline on my left side.
Avatar f tn Use a medicated sun screen - preferably one prescribed by your skin specialist, wash your face several times daily. Use calamine lotion and try to avoid bleaching etc. Consult your skin specialist about any specific medication that you need to take after assessment of your skin type and face symptoms. Let us know if you have any other doubts and post us about how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar f tn I stopped taking the Lexapro about six days ago and I STILL have the feeling of very bad tightness of the skin on my legs, feet and face. Feels like the skin on my face doesn't fit. Could the Lexapro still be in my system? I was on it for about three weeks and have been off it about six days.
1414174 tn?1304680526 Have you tried putting lots of lotion on your face? Most people get very dry skin while on tx, and since the skin on the face is more fragile than the rest of your body, it may react more drastically to the lack of body oil.
Avatar f tn I have a small area of skin on my ankle and leg which is really irritating. It feels like a mild burn, but to touch the skin or have clothes rub on it is horrible. The area looks fine. Could this be a type of altered weird sensation?
Avatar m tn . I'm so mad right now because I looked up something and it's frustrating me. I got a chilly feeling on the left side of my head almost like goosebumps , it lasted for a couple of seconds. I was curious of what it could be so I typed it up online.... Then the results came up and it was people with MS describing how they got the 'cold chilly feeling on one side of head' .... This scared me... all i did was type in the chilly symptom I was getting, and MS came up.
Avatar f tn Does anyone no what to do about sensitive skin. My face is extremely sensitive right now and it hurts just to pull on it a little. Does this last long ? Or what can i do about it.
Avatar n tn I have sensitive skin and I've been using one particular brand of lotion all my life because it's the only brand that didn't break me out, and I never had any strange reactions when I used it. Then recently when I used it I started to feel burning and stinging on my skin. This also happens with other lotions too that never used to make my skin burn until recently. Is there any way I can treat this problem or get help for it? Please help.
Avatar f tn I was then put on minocycline which i have now stopped taking because im fed up of the side effects - e.g. surnburnt skin and also (dont know if this is a proven side effect) but i noticed when i was on it i felt like i needed to pee the whole time, and also burning when i pee. So not sure what the next step shold be really.
Avatar f tn Retinol 4X strength but buffered for the eye area. After 3 days of use, the skin around my eyes started peeling. It made my skin around the eyes so dry that my wrinkles show up evey more so than before. Also, the skin around my eyes is so sensitive now that even applying moisturizer makes it burn. My face became dryer with slight flakiness which I believe is a result of using this retinol product. Is the skin under my eyes permanently damaged or is there a product I can use to reverse this?
Avatar f tn Lavish use of otc hydrocortisone worked well.
Avatar f tn After a few days, a rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots on the side of the trunk or face. The rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters which begin to dry out and crust over within several days. When the rash is at its peak, symptoms can range from mild itching to extreme and intense pain. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn I'm 38. It is on the left side of my chin. It's sensitive to touch and red-patchy enough to have others think it is a lipstick stain.. Should I see a regular physician or a dermatologist?
Avatar f tn I've had this for three days now. My face started getting itchy (kinda like how it would feel from really dry skin). I have tried not to scratch it, so I've just rubbed it a little or wash my face. I found out that washing it releives the itchiness a little. After I wash my face, I've noticed that the redness gets worse but then just goes away in about an hour. My skin is rough and feels like I have little tiny bumps on it. What is this.
Avatar f tn I naturally have sensitive skin, but since I got towards the end of the 1st trimester, I've found that my forehead gets incredibly dry and flaky. Is this (dry skin) a symptom of pregnancy? What's the best product to use to moisturize super dry skin? Are there products (lotions and moisturizers) I should avoid while pregnant? First time mom at 11w+4, so I apologize if I seem naive.
Avatar f tn I get it a lot on my face. This time I got it on my face and it was deep in my eye socket and up my cheek bone, ending somewhere inside my temporal lobe. Oh my... ugh! It hurt to blink. Typically it isn't so painful I would call it pain, just very irritating and distracting. This time, it hurts. This was 4-5 days ago and it has moved deep inside my ear and down my neck to the inside of my throat. I am not sick at all, just hurts to swallow in that irritated way.
Avatar f tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of contact dermatitis and eczema. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Avoid using any lotions and creams over the face for the meantime. Wash your face with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Pat your face dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves.
Avatar m tn the right side of my face is a bit swollen, looking at my face in the mirror i dont notice it but touch both side of face i could tell my right cheek is a bit swollen and it's been 4 days i've tried ice but it doesnt help much and i'm wondering if sleeping on the right side of my face most of the time could be a reason?
Avatar f tn Hello I had to friends who wax there face at a salon , one had sensitive skin and the other normal skin .
1394262 tn?1369625192 Hi mummies I am breastfeeding my dd and I found that ever since I gave birth last mid-December, my skin has become very, very sensitive. As soon as I start to perspire even a little, red patches and red rashes appear on my body-hands, armd, calves, thighs and body. I have it every day that's for sure. And i find the discomfort unbearable. Is anyone suffering from the same problem too??? Is this due to hormonal changes OR due to some herbs that I have been taking? Please share.
