for two years the center of my forehead has been terribly sore. It's tender to touch. And the area just beneath and to either side will burn as if this sore spot was bleeding acid into the surrounding area.

I've been to a gp, ent, neurologist, acupuncturist, and a couple of dermatologists. They don't seem to know anything about it. I've had a ct
scan, mri and mra and been told the results were normal.

The only thing that eases the pain is benadryl antihistamine. Two of the
above docs had mentioned the drying effect of antihistamine, maybe this
is why it helps by drying up whatever is leaking under there. But it doesn't
last for long.

Whatever is going on is under the surface as my skin appears normal
when I look in the mirror.

Anyone know anything about this?

burning head
The I accidently touch it it sends a burning pain at that spot. I have not had a head injury or anything lik that and no one can tell me what it is either
