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


4936507 tn?1365365267 Unless, of course, you have something else going on. As Deebs says, it could be a side effect of a med but I've never read or heard of MS causing something like this directly. If I were in the process of getting a diagnosis I wouldn't mention this to a neuro. It could be wrongly construed as pushing things too much, if you know what I mean. I advise just sticking to major symptoms that are clearly of the neurological type.
Avatar m tn For over a year now i have been experiencing a dry red patch on one side of my face. The patch occours on the left side of my face and becomes irritated/inflamed randomly througout each day. I have been to my local GP on several occasions. I have used hytracortizone creams , heavy moisturizers (E45, Double base ect) and I am now five weeks into a course of antibiotics, but still no visable improvment can be seen with any of these.
Avatar n tn Male 41 years old: Sensitive to touch scalp skin, top left side of head but noticed that the left side of my face is more sensitive to touch, very slight discomfort left eye, very very slight discomfort left ear, no visible surface skin condition. Had 2 days of bad headache 5-6 days before the start of symptoms. Returned from business trip abroad by air (10 hours flight) just before this started. In general area affected is top left side of my head more towards the front.
Avatar f tn There are at least two possibilities that I can think of. One is that the sensations on the skin of the face can be due to a localized reaction to the wind, as the skin of the face is more sensitive than that of the rest of the body. The wind may cause some numbness on the face as well as pins and needle sensation. Another cause is the possibility of a thoracic outlet syndrome, where the base of the neck structures become crowded as you lift the arms.
Avatar n tn What would be the cause of this pigmentation? Why is it only on my face and neck and most on my right side? How can I treat? Does laser treatment sound good?Do you think it could of been the cosmetic products or Kiehls? I know that I'm an oddity,please help.
1009876 tn?1326493677 But when I was 21 I had an allergic reaction to a laundry detergent and started getting hive-like bumps on my skin. It was mainly on one side of my face(although I did get some on my chest as well), and I quickly realized that was the side I slept on most often. I changed my detergent and it slowly (very slowly) started to improve. But, the hive-like bumps were very deep and sore and itchy at the time, and sometimes took up to 2 months to heal. They left my skin scarred a little.
Avatar n tn Is there anything on the outside of your skin or is it just inside? Ask you doctor to check for shingles.
Avatar m tn 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. I told myself not to look it up because I knew it was going to upset me. I just wan't to forget I ever looked it up , but now I can't. I even started to forget about the worry of having a disease like that.
Avatar n tn dear doctor, i dont remember if i had a pimple on the left side of my cheek between my nose and lips which i possible popped but since then it has just became a small red patch that seems to dry every time i use a facial cleanser or when it get wet, no scabs just dry ( like when your skin gets dry and had drk skin which you can rub out ) I have been putting moisturizer it seems to help but its not healing the area.
Avatar n tn If you're on treatment let them know as all kinds of skin conditions worsen on tx including psoriasis. I believe absorbase is a mild cortisoid and may not be strong enough. I'm using stronger topicals for my psoriasis one to two days a week and then Elidel the rest of the time. But my condition may be different from yours. Also, try shaving with a hypoallengenic cream. I found a good electric razor was the least irritating to me especially if used twice a day.
Avatar f tn I am not having any other symptoms than my left temple/eye/cheek has sensitive/tender skin, my eye hurts when I close it and I sometimes get a dull/aching pain from the back of the left side of my head all the way to the point of my left cheek bone. I do feel a little disoriented at times, I kept waking up the night before last not really realizing what was going on and feeling like something was weird in the room... but nothing was different other than my closet door being left open.
Avatar n tn The first sign is usually a tingling feeling, itchiness, or stabbing pain on the skin. 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.
Avatar n tn Let me be clear, I know this is what most of you are talking about, example, if it's on my head it hurts to run my fingers through my hair, if its on my face it's usually on one side or the other, never the whole face, I've even had an eyelid hurt (one or the other). It's the same with my arms and hands, just one side or the other. Chicken soup seems to help (believe it or not).
Avatar f tn Just varies, for no apparent reason I guess. It's almost so sensitive that clothing rubbing on that area of the skin is bothersome and painful. I was wondering if you had figured out what was causing your skin pain, cause I can't figure this out and I've had it for many years.
Avatar n tn During tx I used allmay moisturizer on the sensitive areas of my face-actually, my whole face. And riba rash arms I just used vaseline. It did'nt cure but did hold the rash back a bit. That also cleared quickly when my 48 weeks was finished. I kept my baths short and not hot to preserve any skin oil at all. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn I've been having these red, itchy rashes on my face for several months now. I don't really know how it started one day, but I switched makeup thinking the one I was using for years was causing the rashes. I switched to a certain brand of mineral makeup that contains bismuth oxychloride, which irritated my skin and of course, made my problem even worse. Thing was, it didn't start right away. It got worse after a couple of weeks. My face was a mess!
Avatar n tn After shaving, I am getting ingrown hairs on my face on the side of my chin on both sides. When I look closely to see why I have these small red bumps below the skin, there are hairs just beneath the top layer of the skin. I can dig them out with tweezers, but it leaves red marks, and if I don't, small red bumps form anyways. I need to shave for my job, so using a beard trimmer is not possible. I have read many, many other boards and websites for information.

Use high potency steroids only after consulting a dermatologist. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. For the itching take some antihistaminic like Benadryl.
Avatar f tn I have had the same skin condition since I was born. It comes up on different parts of my face. My eye, on my cheek and on my nose. It's painful at first and then it's itchy and I get a cluster of blisters. The doctors told me when I was little that it was herpes(or cold sores). It leaves really bad scars for years. It takes about two weeks to go away. I've tried to use cold sore medicine and it doesn't make it any better. I just wonder if it's something else.
Avatar n tn They all get problems when eating a lot of wheat stuff. Lose a lot of energy. My two cousins on one side has the same problems. I would actually think that my father also has some intolerance, but he does not listen to what his body tells him. None of them have gotten any diagnose about this, and I don't know how much they have talked to a doctor. Well, my sister just got the diagnose chronic fatigue syndrome.
Avatar f tn It is though unusual for acne to be on one side of face. Acne occurs due to a blockage of oil underneath the skin and builds up with bacteria causing inflammation and develops into a pimple. The common causes of acne are poor diet, stress, genetic, dirt, hormonal imbalances, cosmetics, work-related and drugs. Wash your face with mild soap many times a day. Avoid popping or scratching them. Drink plenty of water. Take a good sleep.Benzoyl peroxide is very effective for acne.
1027802 tn?1253125706 When I mentioned the whole left side of my head and face being numb with occassional tingling in my nose and around my mouth to my neurologitst, he looked at me and said, "I have no clue what's wrong with you, I know you don't have MS." MRI was done without contrast of the head and came back as, appears normal, except for a small area of periventricular white matter increased FLAIR signal, along frontal horns, slightly greater on the left side. No MRI of the spine.
Avatar f tn I wonder if I am hallucinating but, I have taken photos of the sores and red lines, circles etc. that appear on my skin, on various surfaces, carpet, other fabric, etc. I believe the condition has spread to my bladder, due to pain upon urination. Maybe I am nuts???! I trust one of the physicians I see and will see her in mid-June. I hope I can get an answer to my questions then.
1961674 tn?1325306868 Over the past couple of years, I have been having more frequent episodes of sensitivity of the skin on one side of my head and neck. It starts with a feeling of malaise. I will just not feel good. I feel kind of achy and I just want to rest. Then, within a few hours, I will start noticing that my skin is becoming more sensitive. The whole side of my face, my eye, my jaw, up through my scalp will be very tender. Then, I will get shooting pain through my jaw and up through my ear.
Avatar n tn Two are right in front of the ear lobes on each ear and other is middle of the right side of the face. The other day, the one in middle of my face was bumped and my face was continuously bleeding a dark red color blood. After about 10 minutes of pressure for a hold the size of a pen head (really small), it somewhat stopped, completely stopping hours later. I do have acne problems and have started working out and changed my diet from whatever (I limited fast foods, etc..
Avatar n tn I can't be in the sun at all or the skin on my face burns. It feels like it's burning a lot of the time, and when I try to apply any form of moisturizer or mild cortizone ointment/cream, it burns further. I've tried various moisturizers, mild cortizone ointments/creams etc. but nothing has worked for this, in fact most/all of it makes the burning sensation worse. I am at my wits end. I can't be in the sun due to the photophobia and I can't apply sunlotion because that burns the skin as well.
Avatar f tn for the last two days now i have been experiencing tenderness on my left side of my face. I also have a lot of head aches, not major but at least one a day for the last couple of months. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not, but this pain that i have now is not an ache or internal pain. It is actually just sore when i make facial expressions or if i touch chin right up to my top of my head is very sensitive and sore to touch.
Avatar m tn I would say I have oily, but also sensitive/dry skin. After a shower my face skin dries flaky in spots (with or without any soap. The red areas under mouth dry more flaky than any other spot). Start of day, dry skin. Use olay moisturizer. Usually by end of day, skin is greasy. If face gets rinsed, it dries out too much. So with all that, my question is, based on the pictures and the condition, can you tell me what condition I have?
Avatar f tn Good Afternoon everyone, I have a question, I was taken off of treatment the begining of my 15th, started to lose my hair (80%) of it is gone now, anyway now my face is swollen and the right side is worst than the left, I have red blotches from the forehead and spots here and there, I was wondering if this could still be caused from the side effects, can't get my doctor on the phone, said he would get my message on Tuesday.....I said BS I will go to ER first.
Avatar n tn The next time I experienced this was a couple years later on my upper check and forehead on just one side of the face. I asked my DR and she said it may be shingles. She was not concerned or very interested. This latest occurance is effecting my upper left thigh. It's very sensitive to the touch and feels like a sunburn or rash. But, hurts only when touched. It is not red at all. Sometimes it aches, but maybe that's just in my mind because I'm so aware of it.
