Sun Burnt And Cannot Wash
(Abu Dhabi, U.A.E)
My face before sunburn
My name is Fahim and I had made a big mistake. Once I went to the beach without sunscreen and a friend of mine covered me full with the beach sand. When I came home I realized that I had got sun burnt. I didn't know what to do about it. Initially I put some rose water and thought that it will fade away. It has been one year and my skin is still dull, darker and is rough. I cannot use any soap and also I am not confident on using any face wash. I went to a dermatologist and he gave me a Multicare Moisturizing lotion and Elica ointment with 0.1% Mometasone Furoate. For the 1st week I used the moisturizer and then started applying the Elica ointment. Bingo it worked and I got to see the patches on my face disappearing and the skin appearing back though I have lost my rosy color on my cheeks. But after 1 week of stopping the Elica the condition came back. I could see dryness appearing again on my face with patches. During this time I didn't use soap but Seba Med face wash. Kindly help me as I am desperate to have a permanent solution.
Allergic to Aloe - Need Sunburn Relief
I am trying to find a sunburn relief cream that does not contain aloe. I am allergic to it. I have used one in the past and they stopped making it. Any ideas?
Hydrocortisone - Sunburn
My name is Danielle and I recently went to a dermatologist to look at red bumps I get after I shave or my skin rubs together. She told me it was just irritated, and since I have to shave every day being a red head and white and having very sensitive skin that is hard to keep up on. The doctor recommended hydrocortisone. My mom and I went right away to get the creams cortizone 10 with aloe and cortizone 10 cooling relief. I used the one with aloe right away. Today my boyfriend and I went swimming and I put sun tan lotion everywhere but my stomach legs and back. When we got home my stomach was burnt and my legs had this weird red blotch and burn which looked like the outline of my bottoms, but my mom said I may have gotten a reaction to the cortizone from being in the sun. I was like, "No there was no side effects listed", so I took her thought and went searching and came across your website. My question is do you think or know of sun burn reactions from cortizone?
Need Sun Burn Protection......My Rosacea Is Stinging and Red and HURTS!
I have been suffering with rosacea and a red face for around 2 years now. It is always a shade of red and always stinging. Very frequently throughout the day it burns right up and goes bright red. When it does this it is very sore, tight and tingly, it feels as though I have a blow torch on it. I look as though I am permanently sunburned. I cannot find any pattern for when the redness gets worse during the day.
I also have a very greasy forehead, nose and chin and very dry patches around my mouth and jaw line. I have over the past 7 months tried both Clinique and Avene redness solutions. Neither have helped to improve my dry patches nor the redness and both make my greasy areas greasier.
As I walk to work each day, and frequently enjoy sports such as surfing and snowboarding, I need some sun protection and I don’t want to buy an off the shelf sunscreen as I want to stick with organic. Do you have recommendation on a good organic high factor sunscreen for my condition?
It may be that the amount of time I have spent in the water has helped to worsen my condition as it is very hard to find a suitable sunscreen that is waterproof. I am always burned when I get out the sea, even in the winter with windburn. Maybe snowboarding does not help either as I always get burned on the mountains!
Sorry to send such a lengthy email, but, I am desperate to find some useful advise as apart from having a sore face every day, I am finding it very embarrassing, I am always trying to hide my face away. I seem to spend so much time looking at different products but am never sure which ones to actually try.....I am 36 and female.
I hope you can help! Nic
