The itchiness and bumpy rash on your face could be caused by skin exposed to pollen in the air. For example, if you are allergic to tree pollen (springtime) and it touches your face, it can cause symptoms. This can include an itchy, raised rash on the cheeks of your face. It can happen without other common allergy symptoms, such as:
- Nasal stuffiness
- Red, irritated eyes
Patients with grass pollen allergies (late spring to mid-summer) can develop symptoms too. This includes itchy, bumpy, red rashes in areas where the grass pollen touched the skin. For example, having a rash after sitting on grass. Direct exposure to pollen in the air or direct contact can cause allergy symptoms in the skin. This can happen without involving the eyes or nose.
