Customer Question

RARE SIDE EFFECTS, TRICKELING, CRAWLING, MELTING FEELING POST FACELIFT, Had facelift 3 months ago after 7 weeks skin started to burn intensely and go red. Thought it was one of my severe allergic reactions but burning continued. A month and a half later my face started trickeling, crawling and melting sensation. I am on lyrica for burning. I have following questions:
Why would nerves start to burn after 7 wks? Could an allery have inflamed nerves? Why is burning mainly in the evening/night rather than the day? How long could the burning last?
What has caused the trickeling melting feeling? How long could this last for?
My skin is also wet with oil since facelift and has gotten alot worse since trickeling started, what is this?
