My scalp is itchy and I have redness all over my eyes, face, neck and chest area. My eyes keep swelling up. It all started when I bought a new perfume months ago. I only used it twice and started with all these symptoms. Now everything appears to irritate my skin. Years ago I has skin patch tests and I was allergic to perfume, lanolin etc. I am currently using No.7 products without lanolin. limonene appears to be in most of the products these days. I cant seem to reduce the redness and all my face, neck and chest are very painful, dry and red. What can I do? I am going on holiday on Sunday and I am not sure if I will be able to wear sun screen on these parts. I am also using Nizoral shampoo.
Your answer was not very useful Dr.David as I had ready told you I was taking antihistamines and applying Betnovate cream. I also told you that I thought the perfume had started it off so I did not find the information you gave me very helpful.
I am taking Piriton(Chlorphenamine maleate) every for hours.
Also using Doublebase Gel
My GP has just prescribed Steroids 30mgs per day for five days starting today. I just hope they help as nothing else appears to be helping.
I have been referred to a Dermatologist
