In brief: Time & less is more

Avoid all cosmetics, and know allergens.
See a dermatologist to find out what you are allergic to and what to avoid in personal products that come into contact with your skin. Use products that are hypoallergenic and very mild to moisturize and sooth the skin. Dermatologist might prescribe medications to help lessen the symptoms. Time will allow the skin to heal.
