  1. My DH is on my face sometimes its so inflammed i wont go out in public. Things that flare my DH Sun ,heat, humidity and exercising. Especially if need to be somewhere on time and start to get anxious about being late. I really flare up. I beleive stress makes mine worse Some things that work for and things I would not recommend. calamine lotion pink works (but sometimes dries it out to much) cold compresses dry (i wrap a thin sheet type material. around an ice pack) If you are going to be in the heat try to prevent the sweat/perspiration from staying on your skin for to long. I usually bring a cotton handkerchief and keep dabbing off areas that seem to get perspiration (yes,they still sell handkerchiefs and they work great because they are so thin.) If you have areas on your face that you want to cover up with makeup let me know I found a few that won't irritate my DH. Cortisone works at first but can cause problems later i would N O T recommended using it on your face though. My experiences and research on cortisone. I believe 1% is the maximum strength for the face - beyond that you risk permanent damage. Cortisone cream applied to the face has also been linked to people developing permanent infections, or conditions which will cause repeat infections. I have been dealing with this on my face for over 10 years. And at first cortisone on my face worked great but when i stopped,it cames back with revenge. I had to ween my self off if it. Cortisone ointments and creams can cause increased facial hair growth if they are used frequently. These products are not intended for regular, long-term use and they used to be available by prescription only for this reason. I wish i. would have know this 10 years ago. DAPSONE RX. 2 25 mg a day. For inflammation and itching so it can heal. I jusy started taking it the second week in september2012 works wonderful on the itching and brought down inflammation. But I developed a bad chest and head cold along with fever and chills after 6 days. The doctor said to stop taking temporary to make sure it was a reaction or it could of been the flu. I only stopped for a day and a half and i can feel the inflammation starting up. I think I will start it up again and only take 25 mg instead of 50 mg like the pharmacy recommended. I' ll keep you posted. Drink as much water you can. Staying on a gluten free diet cutting out dairy and using gluten free things on skin and hair helps keeps it under control Sorry so long
