Hello. In the last few days I have developed a very itchy burning sensation on my face, mainly on my cheeks and chin area. Around my chin I have developed what looks like a rash, slightly red with lots of little pimples but my cheeks have bigger looking skin coloured pimples (they don't really look like spots to me). This is causing me great discomfort and I have no idea what caused it. I suffered from acne as a teenager but only on my forehead and I am now 27 so I am unsure if this is acne returning or some sort of allergy or skin irritation. In addition I recently had a dermologica prescription facial. I went to the doctor and he put me on benzyl peroxide, I am not sure this is the right thing for me to apply on my skin. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Any help would be great!
