Im from california and am 22 years old
So after a month in spain i started to really itch my face mostly, My face has a rash thats on my nose, cheeks, above my lips under my nose, eye lids and forehead. The rash is mostly little bumps but also consists of a few larger ones that looks like little zits(could be zit from touching my face so much). and around the area is semi red. Ive gone to a dermatologist who tells me i have dermattis and pretty sure he said it was contact dermatits. I was prescibed fluticrem which is corticosteroids .05 and after a week of use my skin got incredibly better there was alot less itch the rash was almost gone and i was very happy with the results also taking antihistemines.
Im allergic to dust but it has never been a problem besides a stuffy nose, my apartment is really dusty, so I ultimatly thought thats what was causing it, so i washed all my sheets in hot water with hypo allergenic detergent and put dust mite protector down. this was durning the week of getting better using the above. After it got worse Next thing i could think of was that it was the alcholol because i went to barcelona over the weekend and drank alot and was not in a dusty enviroment and the rash got worst after.I have always drank alcholol on the weekends just like i did in barcelona. Also i changed my shaving cream the same time i started to get the itching and rash about a month ago. So befor barcelona i did not shave for about a week and a half the same time it didnt get better. So when i went to barcelona i stopped taking my corticosteroids shaved and drank three nights in a row.
the shaving cream contains ISOPENTANE, Polytetrafluoroethylen, ingrediants that cause dermatitis. Isopentane is the one that is known to cause dermatitis the most and nose iratation. my other shaving cream ive always used did not contain these ingrediants.
So Im very puzzled and would some other professional insight. Is it the drinking which has never been a problem in the past. The shaving cream or dust. Or just something else i havnt noticed
but my groind area and scrodum itch too but the groin area under my scodrum between my legs stopped mostly. The problem is my face mostly It itches all day and my shoulders and chest but not as much though. My face
