Facial Damage

Patient

Q: Hello,I went for a facial at a beauty salon in March 2011; this involved microdermabrasion, microcurrent, facial mask and infrared lamp. Since then I have suffered with burning cheeks; my skin feels stiff and swolen and inflamed and feels like it wants to erupt but the pain comes from inside my skin as when I touch on the outside there is no pain. These painful flare-ups happen around 5pm when exposed to electricity. I've seen several top dermatologists and all have been unable so far to cure this awful pain on my face. I've tried all the herbal and organic creams prescribed and painkillers but nothing has worked. I've lost many months off work and now cannot go out into sunlight. Can someone please advise?
