I have had a series of issues in the past couple of years i am trying to get a diagnosis for them but no luck yet.
1) Hypertension (On medication to control that)
2) Allergy like symptoms (itchy eyes/plugged nose) Allergy pills - no effect, no unusual allergies with scratch tests.
3) Red, burning/itchy face. When its wet or when I slather skin cream on its better (itching/burning) but the red doesnt subside. Seems worse in the evening than morning and terrible when I am stressed or worked-up. Told not strewssrelated or it woul dbe bad all the time.
4) Diagnosed with a small mass in my right adrenal gland, nothing to be concerned about since blood work and MRI didnt alarm physicians.

Any ideas? This has gone on for about 2 years. Started with the nose then dry/itchy patches on either side of nose then entire red face.
