Has anyone had red, itchy, dry skin on their face and it not go away?

I have had red, itchy, dry skin on my face for over a year now. It itches so badly! I just want to dig at my skin. It gets really dry and flaky and is red.

I had a sinus infection a couple weeks ago and my doc gave me a strong antibiotic. Well it cleard my face up! I had my real skin back for a few days! I was so excited! But now it's back again on my itching....the dryness...the redness....I'm going nuts!

I do have an appointment with a Dermatologist tomorrow. I hope this Dermontologist does better than the last one I saw. The last one I saw treated me for Acne and it only made my symptoms worse. So i'm seeing another doctor.

If anyone has had these symptoms.....what was it? How were u treated?
