Hi Katie -

Yeah - each outbreak can differ greatly. I've had patches on my face (yes end of the nose as luck would have it) that oozed nearly out of control. The good news is that this will pass. Your body has to heal itself from the overblown allergic reaction. The bad news is that this takes time.

Have you tried other remedies? I've had good luck using baking soda and water as a poultice. Just mix it up to the consistency of slightly runny paste and apply to the rash. It is messy though.

You want to find something that helps to dry it up. Good luck!
