Burning skin sensation on the face, neck, ears, scalp, or shoulders
Burning skin sensation on the face, neck,
ears, scalp, or shoulders:
like your skin is burning as though you have a sunburn, but there
is no apparent burn mark or reason for your skin to be burning.
The area affected can be a very small spot, medium-sized patch,
or encompass a large area. It can also be the same spot over
and over again, randomly change from location to location,
or randomly change in size.
These types of sensations can occur infrequently, recurrently,
or persist indefinitely.
All of the above are common, and will vary from person to
person and even from situation to situation.
