Customer Question

for as long as I can remember I've found my face extremely sensitive to my environment - whether in the sun or in an office with air conditioning/heating. My face often feels tight, sore, tingly and can easily flush or has light redness around my cheeks and forehead naturally.
More recently my eyes have become extremely sore with a burning sensation, I believe this sensation is due to the inner eyelid being very red (especially towards the end of the day).
Does anyone know what this is all down to? any help would be much appreciated!

I think you have rosacea. This can cause swelling and make the face feel tight. I would ask your GP about treatment for this.

Probably a cream like metronidazole gel
