Three days ago, my wife got a red rash on the right cheek. It was small and weak at first, but grew in size as a large patch and spread underneath the nose and mouth in two days. It causes a strong stinging and burning sensation. Please help.

Thank you doctor,
There were no blisters, but the areas that are red feel very lightly swollen. There was no pain prior to the appearance of the rash. She had a very similar rash on her hands multiple times over the course of the last few years and there were blisters. But, it is unclear if those two symptoms are related. The white residue seen on the pictures is pain-inhibiting salve that was applied in an attempt to self-medicate.

First of all I would like to say that she is suffering from erythroderma (attachment removed to protect patient identity) that is wide spreading reddening of the skin.
There are many causes for it, which includes the following:
It is one of the serious conditions if not treated on time as it can affect systemic organs like kidney and heart along with loss of protein.
Complete blood work is needed to reach on the diagnosis upon which the treatment depends. So, I would advise you to visit your nearest dermatologist.
