Need to know more: Although the description is compatible with atopic eczema( since you probably have allergic rhinitis as well as evidenced by the sneezing), it is not possible to tell without a direct examination. Consult an allergist or dermatologist. In meanwhile be sure to bathe daily and apply a skin moisturizer immediately after having sponge dried your skin .
