Theylook different from shingles and both sides of my face. They are itching but look awful. I have been putting TeaTree oil couple of times which seems to help a tiny bit. What couldit be?

hi itchy rash on the face forehead can be due to irritant dermatitis due to any coometics,or due to phytophotodermatitis.i think there is no relation of shigles one year back along with this rash.
it can be treated with atarax 25 mg at bed time,antibiotic azithromycin 500mg for 3 days and application of calamine lotion.if not cured go for prednisolone 20mg and tapering to 5 mg within 0ne week
