Dry patches on my face do not itch sometimes they scale over and ooze. Burning sensation to the touch mostly on my cheeks and nose?

Broad differential: Cannot answer this without seeing the rash, but given the distribution being on the cheeks and nose, would recommend seeing a doctor to make sure this is not a rash associated with autoimmune disorders.

Acute Sinusitis: Acute sinusitis is associated with facial pressure, nasals congestion, fevers, and often sore throat or cough.

Facial pain: Although most likely this is not serious, I suggest you see your doctor for adequate diagnosis. Rarely, in young woman, the immune system can turn against our own myelin of the central nervous system. This may manifest as an intense facial pain (trigeminal neuralgia in demyelinating disorder). Once again, is rare, but worth discussing with your physician. He may decide MRI testing is necessary. ...Read more

You have a cold: The zinc in coldeze may shorten the duration of a cold by a day or so. Symptomatic treatment will make you feel better.
