My problem?

Itchy facial rash, starts out as small round red spots that untreated meet each other and turn into one big shapeless red blob, and then try to grow out further. Looks like a shaving rash, except for the fact that I don't shave with a blade and it often pops up when I haven't shaved at all. Also, hot steam from a bath sometimes provokes it for some reason.

Generally shows up around the lips, but also sometimes alongside the nose or below the eyes. Sometimes but not always also get that nasty fungal white film-thing which washes off but immediately tries to grow back over them.

It's a really finicky bugger, too... It goes away and comes back up rather randomly. Sometimes, UV radiation, baby oil, tea tree oil, or RX antifungal creams work on it, other times, topical steroids kick it back (only for emergency damage control use), and other times yet, it's not harsh at all but suddenly NOTHING works for a couple of days on it.

It's the effin bane of my existence. All the other symptoms may be a pain in the ass, but at least they're not plastered on your face and embarrassing you :( If it flares and won't go down, I end up just staying in the house, no matter what...
