I just noticed that just above from where my eyebrows begin my face is a little swollen. You have to search to see it. Is it from my sinusitis?
Sept 20, 2012, rosecea broke out extreme over nose, eyes, eyebrows, face, chest, on antibiotics over a mo. Pills/lotion, spreading worse, help!?
There is hope: Several things to be done about this but it will take a doc. Steroids can be helpful. Also, you probably should log things that you've eaten or drunk to see if you can correlate any of it to these outbreaks. Rosascea is characterized by intermittent relapses so nothing will make it go away forever. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Eyebrow pain: Pain of the eyebrow can be due to many things. An md would examine to see if there is a rash, scaliness in that area (seborrheic dermatitis). If affecting only one side, for instance, the md would be sure it is not herpes zoster virus.

I have a sly freeze sensation on my left side of the face, right beside the eyebrow. Like paralyzed skin in one place?

Even though you are young I don't know the whole history so my suggestion is to get immediate evaluation especially if this is a new symptom. ...Read more
I've been using epiduo for 6 months . It says on the warnings not to get your face waxed. Is there anyway I am able to get my eyebrows waxed?
Epiduo exfoliates ..: the skin, so if you also wax the same area, it will cause double irritation and redness, so not recommended. If you are not using the Epiduo around your eyebrow area, it should be ok to wax, but there are other ways of removing eyebrows that are more time consuming but effective. Remember that eyebrows often do not grow back, so use caution. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
