Customer Question

2 days ago the top part of my face became rather red itchy and a bit flaky. I put on boots moisture cream and subsequently calamine lotion but it remains rather red and itchy and the areas around the eyes have become puffy. Do you have any advice please? Many thanks.

Thank you for your suggestions. Following my enquiry I thought of ringing my GP and was referred to the 111 service. This resulted in seeing a Doctor this morning who has given me prescriptions for penicillin and antibiotic so I will see how I get on. John
