I have gotten this rash all over my face its been there

Customer Question

hi I have gotten this rash all over my face its been there almost a month now. I have tried using simple soap, pure aloe, cetaphil soap calamine lotion. all of these have been useless. when I applied th aloe it itched so bad I had to wash it off. I don't have any redness, swelling of puss like bumps they are just really tiny. my face is extremely dry and I tried using castor oil to moisturize it one time. I have also realised that anytime I sweat or I am out in the sun it itches very very much. please help

Hi Dr. Mo here, please give me a moment to reply.

Would you be able to upload a picture? That's usually very helpful for me to make a better diagnosis.

I'm not a fan of castor oil, it can plug the pores quite aggressively.

If you are reacting when you are going out in the sun it could be a few factors.
Hopefully the picture of your skin will help me determine the cause and then I can guide you in the right direction.
