3 weeks now, my face (mainly cheeks) have been red, dry, and it used to itch in the beginning but doesn't anymore, although it is still dry, flaky, and red.
So a little background before this happened, I had a dentist appointment about
3 weeks ago and before that I was fine, after the appointment later on that same day, I began to feel my face (mainly cheeks) itch and my cheeks started to feel hard and crusty with dry flaky skin. My skin is usually never dry like this as I have somewhat oily skin.
I don't think it's cosmetics since I've been using them for a long time now and it just wouldn't make sense for me to be allergic to them all of a sudden coincidentally right after a dentist appointment right? This makes me think something in the dentist office whether it may be the latex gloves, equipment, etc that made my skin react like this.
Also my face has these small red non acne bumps that you have to look up close to see but they don't itch, but I know they were not there before I had this reaction.
Has anyone ever experienced something like this before or know what type of reaction this is? It's been about
3 weeks so far and while the dryness has gotten a bit better, it's still there and I'm not exactly sure what to do.
Thanks for any suggestions or advice!
