Today I'm having a strange reaction that I'm wondering how to classify. All afternoon my left ear, esp. the top, has had a burning sensation, and it's bright red. My left cheek, which is normally rosy red with a couple of P&Ps, also burns a bit, but nowhere near as hot and painful as my ear. My husband just got home from work and checked the ear for any broken skin (I was thinking an insect bite of some sort) but didn't find any.
I'm wondering if it's a weird flare from a lunch of total junk food (McDonald's burgers & fries with a couple of Snickers bars - I know, I know . . .). I haven't eaten these things in quite a while, and maybe something in it is a trigger.
I was diagnosed with rosacea just over 3 weeks ago, so I'm still trying to determine all my triggers. This is just weird 'cuz of the ear involvement. I took some Benadryl to cover my bases.
Has anyone had this reaction with their ears? TIA
