Hello I am really worried as in the 7 weeks I've been getting severe dry skin on my face. Its very flaky and itchy no matter how much I moisturise my skin with absorb it in minutes. My neck is also severely itchy, jawline and certain parts of my forehead and they sting and I dont understand why and my skin also tends to get very warm and starts to burn even if I dont scratch. Im not eating anything different or applying anything other than e45 on my neck. My gp are terrible, I had a full blood test which didn't show that I was suffering from allergies but my face swelled up twice a few weeks ago. I also experience red scaley skin and patches on my neck and again today but I hadnt eaten anything nor applied anything on my skin...it just happens . My diet hasnt changed nor have my products.i havnt used facial creams or makeup for a week yet the symptoms still continue. Please help as my neck suddenly went realy red today at 3am and it had red dry patches. I have tried the steroid cream and shower demol cream prescribed by my gp nothing works. My skin is still very sensitive.
I cant post a picture it im not able to attach it its not clear. Also the redness has calmed down today it was severe yesterday and probably will get bad worse in a few days
No...my doctors just gave ne creams they didnt even examine or observe nor did they refer me. I visited them on 3 occasions. Im only sleepy 2 or 3 hours a day because of the burning sensation on the neck. It basically looks quite red and when I touch itbthe texture is a little scaly but I have not scratched.

It like im having a chemical feel every few days with a new layer of skin on my face that's sore but a burning neck
So the information you provide me with will just me an assumption
Ok that's fine
Your response is more related to American medicine rhe diagnosis Humira is not used in the UK. You have provided two possibilities which has confused me even more
I have doubled checked it with a doctor and he has confirmed that this is not the case and to much specifics without diagnosis
I asked a UK doctor and he advised me that wedont use Humira in the UK. Sorry about before I just panicked and im really scared that I will be diagnosed with something serious. I did have a full blood test 2 weeks ago...would lupus autoimmune disorder have been picked up if did have it.
Im not sure as when I went to see my gp I told him my skin kept feeling really dry and peeling. ..I was told a full blood test was needed to check allergies. And the results came back showing I had slightly high cholesterol and no allergies were picked up
I am very grateful for your response and I would like to thank you again for the thorough detail in your answers.
Also thank you for being so understanding. When I visit this site again I would most definitely like to speak to you again and no other expert.
Thank you Dr Chip
Yes I will most definitely let you know how it goes. God bless you.
