Red blotching skin after the shower


My husband gets red blotching skin on his face after a shower, it lasts 2-3 hours after.  He uses Dove bar soap on his face, and Garnier Whole Blends on his hair; he has a beard.  I suggested that maybe his water is too hot?  Any other suggestions of what he should try?

Thanks!  This is my first visit to the Sephora online and my first group and first post! so looking for to more.

@AndreaHAY does he get a similar reaction if he exercises or sweats a lot? It could be an immune reaction to heat and not the products. Look up cholinergic urticaria and see if the pictures match.

Thanks for the reply. The skin is not raised bumps, just red patches on the skin.

@AndreaHAY he could just be flushing from the heat, some people are more prone than others. You could try switching the products he uses to see if it's that but it doesn't sound like it's bothering him with the exception of the redness.
