I think it's a cortisone withdrawal. I went through it after I was using a product that wasn't supposed to have cortisone but turned out it did, and it was terrible and all I wanted to do was slather in hydrocortisone but I suffered through, and it does get better!! I didn't have good luck with coconut oil, that actually made me redder, but I did have good results with the JM argan oil. Good luck sweetheart! I hope it's getting better and better each day!!
