I have had a reoccurring problem with redness around my nose ,forehaed and upper cheeks . This tends to take the form of blotchy patches.
This sometimes flares up after I have showered but varies from day to day.I sometimes have itching ,dryness and a feeling of my skin heating up.

I have been unable to obtain a diagnosis and I have tried various creams suggested by GP but no joy. This is really getting me down and becuase it is so unpredictable it is affecting my ability to carry out my work which involves meeting people and travelling.

I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions.

I am taking medication for pain relief which I have been taking over a long period.

Thank you
