What could be the cause of red, itchy, dry and scaly face ?

I first notice I have red bumps on my face like acne will erupt. Then I use loreal face scrub to exfoliate my face but it got worst. I am a female 40 years of age have a very stressful job ( nanny of an 11 years old with autism ). That day I ate clam chowder soup, before I am allergic with shrimps but not with other sea foods. I drink coffee twice a day. I think the change of weather too might be the cause and I stayed in the sun bet 1 - 3 pm and forgot to put sunscreen . And now my face is like swollen, pinkish not much red but itchy, flaky and feel a burning feeling. I always use cetaphil facial cleanser , bar and SPF 15 moisturizer I don t know what happened. Thank you in advance. All the best! Aileen
