this is Dr. David
I am sorry about your wife's skin facial swelling and redness.
this could be due to severe rosacea or possibly lupus or psoriasis or something else.
she may need blood testing to check for lupus
a biopsy is needed to check for psoriasis.
can you upload a clear jpg photo of your face and swelling so I can better help you?
that is good the steroid cream is helping the redness.
yes, I see the redness.
you are welcome
ask for ANA, ESR, C reactive protein and blood test to check for lupus
the redness looks more like lupus or possibly rosacea.
ask to consult with a dermatology specialist as well
if her blood tests are positive for lupus, she will need to see a rheumatology specialist.
let me know if you have other questions.
