I have a pimply rash on my face..
It is mainly on my forehead, my chin and either side of my nostrils..

I am 20 years old, and rarely got pimples growing up.

The rash looks like small red dots - much like nappy rash, or the rash that babies get on their faces!

I have not changed any facial products that I use, or changed eating habbits..

The only thing i can think of is heat rash, as it has been quite hot lately..

I've never had anything like this before, and it's really bummed me out, as it IS on my face after all..

The only other thing i can think of it that i work with dogs, at a grooming salon, and we have changed shampoos recently.. I know this does not directly come in contact with my face, but i do touch my face subconsiously, to remove hair out of my eyes, or sweat (as i said - it had been quite hot!)

Please, if anyone can help me, or give me advice on treatment, it would really be appreciated!

I have looked on other forums, and some people suggest bepanthen cream - that treats nappy rash. I'm just worried that the oily cream will bring out proper pimples.. As the rash is not actually pimples, it just looks like tiny red dots.

Please help :( i'm a bit distressed and down about it

  • I suppose it could be scabies or ringworm from the dogs; you might want a doctor to take a look.
