Allergic reaction to day cream (swelling + broken capillaries)

hello, i'm new here and wondering if someone can help me. i used a day cream from Nuxe twice during the past weekend--the 2nd time i noticed that my skin was quite dry and i had developed a rash. i stopped using it immediately. i was in pain, but the day after my face swelled up and i noticed broken capillaries (some looking like little scratches surface). my skin is still inflamed, and a little swollen. i have been avoiding the sun, taking an antihestimine every day, and just using avene spring thermal water and avene recovery cream to help it calm down. i'm also dabbing cotton balls soaked in cold chamomile tea on the skin when i can. i'm really scared about the broken capillaries. will they fade once my skin calms down, or is the damage permanent. is there something else i should do? i don't even know if this is a common reaction to a rash--it's quite troubling and i'm trying hard not to panic! just a general note about my skin: generally good, but quite sensitive and sometimes a little thin (i did have two broken capillaries on my left cheek, but i've had that since i was little)...please, i'd appreciate any advice at all! thanks!

Before I can help you, I do like to know your daily diet if you are allergic to any food chemical of anything else. Also do like to know your skin type. where you stay and what is the geographical condition of your surrounding.

Try Arbonne's RE9 Advanced anti-aging line! It's helped so many people with broken capillaries and rosacea. It helped decrease my redess by over 50% in just a couple months! I loved it so much that I became a consultant! ;) If you would like a sample, let me know! I love helping people find something that makes them feel/look better. :)

Without seeing you personally, It sounds like you've had an allergic reaction to the product. Not uncommon today, considering the number of chemicals found in most skin care products. I suggest reading the label and doing some online research as to what your product contains. You may be suprised.
