I am writing here on behalf of my daughter, in the hope someone may have heard or had these symptoms and knows what to do.
My daughter's skin looks like its burned her ears and face are swollen and very very red, she says she looks like she has been in a fire!
Her doctor doesn't know what this is, even cold water or a natural moisturiser without perfume in feels like they are burning a hole in her skin, she is on pain killers and the doctor has given her steroids to take. It started with her ears then over her face and head now going down her neck, shoulders and back and down to her breasts today. She says her skin feels like it's being torn, very tight and cracking yet also very itchy ... I have never heard of anything like this ... has anyone heard of anything like this or any treatment for it please!
Any help or advice would be appreciated so I can pass the information on to her.
