Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... My 2 1/2 year old son woke up from his afternoon nap feeling very hot and with blotchy, red skin on his face - around his ears and cheeks and above his eyebrows. He ate some fresh store bought meatballs at lunchtime that he s never had before - could it be the spices in that which caused this? He s fine otherwise, full of beans and eating and drinking normally. Thanks, Nadine

I am a 59 yr old female and have developed darker blotchy skin on my neck. I avoid sun now but over the years have had several sunburns to my face and shoulders. I am Type 2 diabetic, taking glucophage. I have had a complete hysterectomy and am on 2 different HRT meds. What has caused the blotchiness and how can I prevent further problems and treat what I already have?

Hello, my name is Kristiyan and i m a 19 years old. I have this problem whenever I get nervous, tired or sad, red blotchy marks appear on my chest , face and arms. It started about 3 years ago, it is really annoying and it itches alot and the only way to get it away is to stop thinking about it, but that s really hard. I ve asked a couple of doctors, but they all say it s allergy and i m pretty sure it s not , because all the prescriptions they gave me never helped! I ve also read alot of forums and from what I understand other people with sensetive skin have it too, but no one seems to know how to get rid off it! I would really appreciate if you can help me with this.
