Hi everyone,

I recently woke up with a big rash over the whole of my face, in particular around the eyes, on the cheeks and chin. It's now spreading to my forehead and neck.

I've had this before and have seen my GP, the problem is he never gave me a diagnosis but just gave me a course of anti-biotics which seemed to help.

I've suffered from impetigo before, always on my face, but I'm pretty sure this isn't impetigo... well, the doctor said it wasn't last time I saw him. I could be wrong, just though i'd mention it.

I've included pictures, maybe you can shed some light on this because It's driving me insane. This is about the 4th time this has happened, and I've never received a diagnosis.

(I apologise for the picture quality; I took them with my phone camera)

Also, i'm 22, female, and have always had good health (apart from matters of the skin...)

Thank you in advance!
