Many other endocrin test have been performed and returned in normal range. Intense Burning sensation of skin always starts around jawline or scalp and intensity lasts about 20 minutes then slowly calms down. redness takes up to 18 hours to completely fade back to normal. since first episode, areas of my face and neck have remained slightly pinker than before first episode.
