hi..thanks for your query.
Let me first speak about the Vitamin E that you have recently applied on face..if you feel that the rash is more after that ,or you have developed something new, you definitely might be more sensitive to one or the other components of the procedure..It might be the ingredients or any of the coloring agent or even the preservatives used in the process...very difficult to pin point without doing the patch test.Hence refrain from doing anything similar in the future.
there are several good creams available under medicated products..they have Vit E in it, which should be safer than the procedure you are talking about.Do a patch testing behind your ear before any new application..
hope this helps..take care!
