Nablus,

Once again, as with the previous question, it really is difficult to say what the problem is without having a look at it myself. It may be eczema for which a good moisturiser such as epimax or a MILD over the counter topical corticosteroid may be usefull, or may even be due to an allergic reaction for which an antihistamine may help. If you statred using a new cosmetic product, facial cream or even detergant recently this may add to it - Think carefully at what cahnges you recently made - By simply removing an irretant your problem can also be helped.
My advice would be to ask your local pharmacist to have a look - If he can help he'll prescribe something, but otherwise he'll refer you to a doctor.
