i have this rash on my face that has been there for about a month...it was a lot worse and i started using "Elidel" for eczema and it helped but didn't solve it...the skin is dry and scaly and peels off...its slightly red with bumps...and causing the pigment in my skin to go white in that area...it doesn't itch...its not painful its just dry and looks awful...i always had perfect skin hardly any pimples...and i got this...it kinda looks like that fungus you get in your skin in warm climates "Tinea" i havent tried using lamisil on it, and i havent taken diflucan... i just want to see if anyone knows what it is before i use other stuff on it...i would go to the derm. but i live in Miami...its a little expensive and i don't have health insurance to cover it...
