Itchy Rash On Face, New Sympton Of Fibro Of Meds Side Effect?

Itchy Rash On Face, New Sympton Of Fibro Of Meds Side Effect?

My doc says it was a new moisturiser i used, but still got the rash two weeks later after treatment. Also started propranalol (anxiety meds) at same time, but doc says its very rare to get a rash from these.

I get itchy areas on my face just out of the blue. I now know that I have become hyper sensitive to almost everything. So it may still be an effectively of the moisturizer, because it does soak in. Or a towel or pillow case?
I've been using propranolol for a few years, as and when I need then now. Absolutely no side effects, apart from feeling calmer 🙂
They have been my constant medication for anxiety and stressful times. I prefer them over antidepressants because they can be taken when you need them and work when you need them. Propranolol do not take weeks to be effective.
My red itchy patches on my face do go away. I use E45 non perfumed moisturiser, and occasionally a charcoal based face mask.
Also my skin can flare up due to something I ate!
Good luck and be gentle on yourself. 🌹

Please evrtyone stop eating barley, wheat n rye n also lactose products. I have not had these for years n have no itching . For some reason food sensitivities are a major cause of problems. Feel better today. Got intravenous vitamin supplementation

I get a rash on my face it's on one side. I've noticed it has gotten larger and spread on some days. I'm not sure if it is associated with lupus, which I tested positive but was informed its a low level and no need to worry. Anyways, the itching happens on my face and areas of the body. Last night it was the back of my scalp and on my wrist. I noticed there were bumps on my wrist where I am tattooed. I'm not sure why this is happening if its fibro, nash or lupus. 🤪🤪 I'm getting tired of it all!

I start having itchiness on my cheeks out of the blue. I haven't worn any makeup since the Covid 19 started up. Now after reading your posts I can assume it is the Fibro. I don't get a rash just the itchiness. It has been a tough couple months with the Fibro. Getting alot of flareups. I am sensitive to the barometer. If it drops below 30 it seems to set me off. Not to mention the rain and storms.Hope my insights can help the other warriors out there suffering with this disease. Hang in there. Be Strong!
