Customer Question
I have a burning sensation...
I have a burning sensation on the skin around my eyes. My skin will look red and also drys up at times. I have put oil around it which at times helps with the dryness and also hydro-cortisone. Both those things though only provide mild short term relief.
I also have the same thing happening on the middle of both my arms opposite my elbows.
I'm not sure what is causing this I thought maybe it was the consumption of milk which I have ceased but my symptoms have only worsened since,
Any idea what I am looking at and what options for treatment might be available to me?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
