Hello, I have had...

Hello, I have had a skinreaction after using several creams on my face. also a scrub. my face was all swolen for two times. this was for 3,5 months ago. Now my skin is sltill burning painfull red and irritated. Is it normal for the skin to take so long to heal? Excuses for the writing. i am from holland. Thank you

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

No. nothing. only the face. This happend 3,5 month ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No i dont think so. I have a sensitive skin. and before this happend i didnt have this problem.

I do have a sensitive skin. mayby this can be the reason for not healing fast. the skin is also flaky. you can see the flakes on my hair.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
