Ok....this started happening to me when i was 18...and now im 27..i break out in these crazy rashes ....they last 5 or 6 days...and go away for 5 or 6 days..then back again. I've tried everything! The rashes dissapeared for about a year...but back it came. I find it gets irritated a little more when i have a shower. Usually itchy..always red...sometimes scaly or flaky(but not always)and very noticeable!! I was hoping maybe someone has the same thing going on? Im just not sure what to try anymore? Can someone help?

The only thing that helps me keep it away is laying in a tanning bed. I know it sounds insane but its the truth.

Ive Had the exact same issue, started around the age of 18! I'm 23 now.. its there for around a week gone a week and cycles exactly like he explained...

I found the same thing which seems to keep it at bay..
Vitamin D seems to help dramatically, I noticed going to the beach and sunbathing it would vanish completely as if its to do with a vitamin D deficiency.. then the moment winter comes around, BOOM.. back again! I might go and see a specialist about it soon, it takes a heavy toll on my confidence.
Thanks for posting,

I have bad outbreaks normally in the winter. The last week has been very bad as I also have a cold. Only yesterday someone suggested that I try Sudo Crem (as used for babies) and today the rash is gone. So well worth a try!

Maybe associated with a soap or detergent?

I know it is expensive but a dermatologist is really the best specialist to examine and diagnose such a problem. Perhaps you are both experiencing an infection or parasite. Who knows? Get thee to a dermatologist!

Facial Rash
This is a bacterial infection usually affecting men between 18&30. The best way is to clean your face with a mild facial soap and apply triple antibiotic at night. After washing your face in the morning wipe with alcohol then moisturize your face. Throughout the day wipe affected area with alcohol wipes. Use triameceolone cream only when everything else fails. seborrheic dermatitis is what it is called I think. You probably have dandruff too. After washing your hair wash you head with original Listerine and let it set as long as you can until the sting really sets in. Rinse and do it again. Do this for three days straight and your dandruff will disappear. Don't get it in your eyes. The seborreic is usually associated with dandruff of the head. When I got rid of my dandruff this way, the seborreic left also. Stop using gel or hairspray if you do.

seborric dermatitus??
I have the red blotchy skin around both sides of my nose and also can't grow a go-T because of it. I get it between my eyebrows also. It doesn't itch and Ive had it for 4-5 years. The only thing that help short-term is apple vineger. I did have a surgery last year and before my surgery I had a steroid inj. in my spine and had a clear complexion for 2-3 months???

Hi I have had this exact same problem since I was 18. I am now 56 and still get the odd outbreak. It is funny that dandruff is mentioned in connection to this because I now get rid of an outbreak by very carefully rubbing Head and shoulders dandruff shampoo onto the rash and then rinsing with cold clean water. Rash is gone in 24 hours.

Rash around eyes/nose-- Sebborheic Dermatitis?
I'm a 21 and have had red itchy rashes around the sides of my nose, eyebrows and eyes, for about a year and a half now. They'll go away, but then I'll get "flareups" again. I went to the dermatologist and they told me it's almost impossible to diagnose a skin condition and that you just have to do it with trial and error. They believe it's sebborheic dermatitis. You can get topical steroid creams, but they're expensive and not really all that good for you.
It's extremely embarrassing and very noticeable. Every time I get a flareup I can't help but get depressed and hide away where no one will see me.
Does anyone have home remedies that have worked for them?

Seborric dermatitis
I suffer from the same thing and I have only found one thing to relieve me of the redness and flaky skin....laying in the tannin bed. I know it sounds crazy but it truly worked for me.

red itchy flaking around nose
My chemist just mixed something, didn't tell me what it was, told me to apply it and keep the area extra clean and expect it to happen again in the summer time.. Also told me it was definately aggrivated by my allergy to chemicals found in my makeup, my soap, my deoderant - pretty much everything that most people use every day. This allergy I noticed when I was 16 by extreme itchiness on my eye lids every time I washed my face with soap and exema (spelling again) in a small area on one of my legs. So apparenty this skin sensitivity aggrivated my rash around my nose, seeing as I obviously still use make up. Very vague, but this summer it came back and I'm keeping it in check with the random cream. I know this is uncomfortable to discuss, but my mother (a former nurse) actually said that it's probably a kind of hepitius (don't know how to spell that) and that's why it'll never really go away and why my chemist spared my feelings. Hope we all actually get some straight answers on this at some point.

I was having a problem similar to others in this thread. I'm 34, male, & never had any skin issues prior to 8 months ago, when I started getting red flaky skin on my face. Primarily in the areas with facial hair (chin, upper lip area, eyebrows) but also along the bridge of the nose & occasionally under the eyes & forehead. It would itch, & would flare up after showers, & washing my face would result in very blotchy irritated skin. I don't have dandruff or acne & this has been a totally confounding problem. I recently saw a groupon in my email about a supplement for healthy hair called "Biotin". I googled it, & read that a biotin deficiency can show exactly the symptoms I was having. I got a bottle of 1000mcg softgels at walmart for about $3, & have been taking roughly 4 or 5 softgels daily w/meals. I noticed VERY positive results after just one day. No blotchiness after the first day, & after about 3 days the flaky skin was nearly gone & doesn't appear to be coming back. I had to post because I haven't seen this mentioned in this thread. It's super cheap, you can get it almost anywhere, & it's working great for me. I really hope this helps somebody.
