Redness around eyes: Redness around the eyes is usually due to irritation, most commonly from rubbing of the eyes. As a first step, I suggest that you try lubricating tear drops.

Is a 20cm local swellig and redness to mosquito bit so severe? Is an epipen (epinephrine) necessary? Can it turn to systemic response next time?

That's a lot: I've never heard of anaphyllaxis to mosquito bite, but I've never heard of 20 cm hive either.

Epi pen, and testing for MASTOCYTOSIS if one is being very cautious. ...Read more

What would cause my face to suddenly get hot and red? Redness lasts about 30 minutes body temp stays normal. Alergic reaction? This also happens sometime when I am in a stressful situation but most of the time I have no idea why

Can I know if the redness and uneven skin texture caused by BP permenant? I've been using aloe as a mositurizer on the affected area for mths but have not seen any improvement. I stopped using BP for the time too. I'm really concern if it will fade.

Wrap ice in a wash cloth and then soak it in whole milk. Apply this compress to the area twice a day for about 5 minutes each time. This should help. ...Read more
