i'm so sorry. it's crazy uncomfortable isn't it? just recently (dec.20th through january 2nd) when i was sick with a bad virus, my face went beserk too.
from my ears across my cheecks across my nose, like a mask. IT FELT LIKE A BAD SUNBURN! it was very hot to touch, and all day long it just felt like it was scorched.
the skin was pink to red, the worst spots were on the apples of my cheecksand right under my eyes...even my eyeballs felt hot.
i did have a fever too, so if that had anything to do with it i dunno.
i know that the bathroom lighting made it burn worse, and also after i showered, it would turn redder & burn more.
also, i developed raised bumps, like acne but not. sorta looked like rosacia.
was kinda itchy too.
i feel it's an autoimmune thang. probably a freak thing from having an AI disease...that or you were having an allergic reaction to something perhaps???
well hon, even though i have no real answers...just wanted you to know that i went through similar issues recently too.
