    Hi girls, well some of you may know ive not been feeling very good latley had a really bad cold which went to my stomach and flared up my ibs. Well to top it all off the doc gave me some cream for my face last week to help clear up my spots and to tackle the hair growth on my lip and i woke up xmas morn and had had a bad reaction to it!! Its horrible feel so bad my face is puffy, really bad red rash all over it and so dry and tight it hurts so much.

    AHHHH hope it clears up soon goin to the in laws today and look hideous, feel so upset but i darent cry as it will make it worse. No idea what to put on it tho any suggestions??

    Hope you all had a great xmas.

    Arg hon, sorry to hear that. Sometimes it is best to just leave it. What cream did he give you? I am sure it is not as bad as you think. I always stress about my skin but hubby is always telling me it never looks as bad as I think. I know it is hard but try not to stress. If you really want to put something on it then just bsth in luke warm water. Hugs and let us know how you get on xxxxx

    Oh no :( You're really in the wars... I agree with Gizzy Kelly - probably best to leave it for now as anything else you put on it might inflame it more. If it's still bothering you Wednesday, get yourself an emergency doc appointment. Sorry you're having a rough time hon - Hope 2012 is the start of better things for you... :) xx

    If it'll put your mind at rest you should go. Maybe next time if you get a cream you should test on a small patch first.... Glad it's better tho :) hope it carries on that way.... xx

    My eldest has a skin condition and he gets creams from his doctor, but the dr has told him many times that most creams for skin conditions are for the body only and are too strong for the face so he has to go into his medical book to confirm that the one he is giving him for the face is not too strong or it will burn the skin. And he tell him not to mix them up or he will be in a lot of pain.

    Thinking maybe your gp has giving you a cream thats for the body and too strong for the face.

    Hope it gets better soon Michelle.

    Hi everyone, i went to docs but they are too busy to fit me in today so will go back in the morn as im having my 21 day bloods done at 8.30 in the morn with the nurse so she said she will b able to get me an appointment then. Thankfully it has improved so much in the last 24hrs n im now left with just tight peeling skin.

    It was a special acne type cream for the face furryheart but i knew i shudnt have bothered i told the doc i wasnt that bothered by the spots i was more worried about the irregular periods and the dark hair growth, i so wish i hadnt used it now i knew i shouldnt have. Oh well at least its getting better.

    Thanks for all your replies will update after docs tomoz.

    Are you allergic to lanolin? I get really bad reactions and look like a blister face! Oilatum & diprobase are good but are thick on your face though :/ on a positive you will have baby soft skin once the rash clears!x
