Dry Inflamed Skin On Face
My husband has Red inflamed Skin blotches on his face, he has had it before. When I change the Shampoo then usually it happens. Something OTC?
Hives: This sounds like a somewhat serious reaction -and I would try to get more information about it. It's possible he is allergic to something in the shampoo, although I would want to know all his exposures. Unfortunately, allergy can become worse with the next episode.

When exercising: clogged ears, raised heart rate, hard eyes, pulsating neck and head, red skin blotches on face, feels like walking on air why?
? physiologic: During exercise the heart rate, blood pressure, and cardiac output increase and can cause the ears to seem to be "stopped up" and cause the pulsations in the neck. Blood flow increases to the skin to help eliminate heat that the body is generating (flushed face). I suspect you may be hyperventilating to some degree and that causes numbness and tingling around the face, arms and legs. ...Read more
