For about a week now my entire face has developed

For about a week now my entire face has developed some sort of flaky, red, face mask. My face just isn't simply smooth and with visible pores and such. Do you think it'll clear over time? Why is my face only reacting this way? I was thinking because I may have used expired aloe cream product?

Four weeks ago I noticed a couple of small red bumps on my arms and thought they were mosquito bites. I then developed a sore throat for 4-5 days and an upper respiratory infection thereafter. I felt lethargic but was able to continue my daily routine. Then more bumps on my arms and then very quickly a large amount on my thighs and down my legs - even on my feet and the backs of my hands. My torso had very few at first but then a week an a half later started getting them on my chest, stomach and back - smaller and fewer than on my arms and legs though. The older ones have dried up and started to heal (although the skin is still bright pink where the spots were) but I continue to get new bumps - even a few on my face (forehead and bridge on my nose). I have seen two doctors who think it is some sort of virus but were not able to provide a conclusive diagnosis. One gave me a course of Prednisone. Other than that I take lukewarm showers, apply calamine lotion every night and try not to scratch. The itching is not terrible - more from the bumps drying out than anything else. From what I have read on-line I believe I have PR even though I don t recall a specific herald patch. I sent photos to YYYY@YYYY . Do you have a recommended course of treatment?

I had a tooth abscess 2 weeks on the right side and an ear infection (right side) at the same time. A week ago, I caught a terrible cold which was worse in the right side of my face - right tonsil, right nostril (either blocked or very runny). I m on penicillin now and have developed further ear pain on the right side and a headache (today) and conjuntivitis in my right eye. My doctor is unaware of the headache and conjunctivitis. What should I do? Is further investigation necessary?

Good morning Doctor, Last week Wednesday I started to get a red, itchy rash on my ears, eyebrows and cheeks that then spread to my entire face by Friday. Developed fever and headaches on Friday too. Started using stop itch creams. Unfortunately the rash spread to the inner sections of my elbows late Friday and really flared up over the weekend. The rash has started spreading to my neck , chest areas. Could not sleep last night because it was itching and burning all day and night. Woke up this morning with swollen eyes. The area around my mouth, a circle is not effected with a rash...only a few bumps on the line of the lip. What type of rash do I have?
