I had an inflamed patch of pink skin on may face on both sides of the nose (on the upper cheeks) and several small pink bumps. This was itchy as well. The doctor prescribed prednisone and it cleared up with that. But the small pink bumps returned after two weeks (although in much milder form) and I seem to have got a few of these now on my neck and shoulders as well. The doctor says this is a bacterial infection and has prescribed an antibiotic now. However, I am concerned whether the diagnosis is right and what could be the real cause and treatment of this problem?

Hello. I have intense burning on the skin of my face, (forehead, nose area and cheeks). It causes profuse sweating and discomfort. It feels like chilie pepper has been rubbed on my face. This has been happening for about a week. It starts sudenly and seemingly without any cause. Then it lasts for about 30 min to one hour. Then it subsides. Today, has lasted for several hours.

I am being tested for lots of auto immune diseases and allergies and basically everything. I have recently been diagnosed with cold urticaria (the cold gives me huge burning hives everywhere). I also have swollen eyes and swollen lungs and muscles/joints. I ve been getting a lot of skin/inflammation issues. One big issue I have is that I have been having burning reactions to my vaginal discharge. My skin is literally getting burns on it. They have tested me for everything and it all comes back negative. The only thing I can think of is that I am getting the same auto immune response to the discharge as I am to the cold and other things. So basically I m allergic to my vaginal discharge. Is there anything I can do to help this problem?
