Hello, I've been waking...

Hello, I've been waking up with dry, red burn-like areas on my face randomly for the past few years

Doctor's Assistant: When did the redness first appear? Have you used any medication for this?

No medication, and it appears around my nose and mouth every winter. A new area appeared this morning.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a dermatologist about the redness?

Not yet

How long does that last?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The second photo is of the one that appeared this morning, these typically last anywhere from 2-4 months
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The ones that appear on the smile line s typically last the longest

What you've got there is a type of cold urticaria--sort of an allergic skin reaction that usually only occurs during the winter months

Nothing all that serious but you can treat it with daily Claritin or Zyrtec and, while it's present, over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream

Please let me know if you need any more information

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

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.
