I discovered through sharing my journey that many of my readers have done form of this or facial eczema as well. I wanted to share what I’ve been doing and what has worked for me.
The products I’m using currently are the Osmia Black Clay Facial Soap and I alternate between Erbaviva Sunscreen and Avene Cicalfate Cream. I also mention food intolerance testing so stay tuned for my collaboration with Everlywell and we can take a 96-food test together — there will be a discount code for you!

My rash November 2018. It first appeared as this burning chin patch.

My skin on the morning I’m publishing this! So clear. Some scarring but at least it’s cleared up!
