Doctor :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform. You seem to have develope d allergic contact dermatitis following the face mask combination. Most commonly, it is because of soda. You should see your doctor who would prescribe you a topical antibiotic cream like Mupirocin as well as low dose topical steroid. In case you have any itching associated, an anti-allergic drug like Levocetirizine would help you. Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy
