Hi all!
Right, so i have just returned from a ski trip in the alpes and have come back with some skin issues, including; exzma-like patches on backs of arms and legs and stomach, severe acne on face, chest and back, and now i have this oliy patch at the back of my head on my crown which no matter how i wash my hair (every day or have left for a few and then washed it) it is still there. Now reading up on previous posts, this seems to either link with stress, a fungal infection or hormonal issues. Or is this just down to how my skin has reacted with the severe dryness of the alpes? none of this makes any sense and i have lost all confidence as i just look like a mess at the moment? Please, can anyone tell me what this is and how it has happened?
