Dry and irritated skin around the cheeks

Hi everyone! I've been using some products for a while with no problem, but recently my cheeks have become irritated with the moisturizer and cleaners I use (both CeraVe). It sometimes even hurts to wash it off with water, and only my cheeks hurt. Has anyone else had experience with this and tried a new product that solved their issue? Thanks!

@cpanda  Is the irritation from using masks or being in extreme cold to long? You aren’t using any other new products that could cause irritation? Have you changed your laundry detergent?

Re: Dry and irritated skin around the cheeks

everything has been the same, same products and detergent. I don't really go outside that often but when I do it's only for short periods of time. I have cloth masks that are washed with the same detergent for my clothes.

@cpanda  Has anything in your diet changed? I would make an appointment with your doctor maybe worth getting checked out.
