Im hoping that somebody on here might have a clue what condition it is that I might have. This has been driving me crazy for a very long time.
I am a 31yr old male and I used to have severe normal teenage acne from the age of 13 but when I was about
20 this changed and the acne became more cystic and I also started getting a terrible rash all over my face.
The rash is extremely sore with a burning sensation and has constantly been all over my face now for 10 years. The only way to desribe it is as different shaped dry patches which appear all over my face, not just in one certain area, though they do seem to be worse more often next to my nose, on my cheeks and just above my eyebrows.
I have tried nearly every product going over the years and changed my diet etc but nothing works, just aggravates it, even washing in water makes it worse leading to the patches get even redder and new ones appearing. I have searched the net but nothing looks similair.
My skin always looks leathery, red and blotchy and feels itchy and sore all the time. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions that would be great!
Here are 2 recent pics off my skin, though this is when its actually not too bad.VIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGE
