I have red rash on my face, its on my cheeks and fore head and a bit on my neck, its not really itchy, but it feels hot, and gets quite dry. I've had tablets and cream, but it just keeps coming back, I've had it last 3 years but it always goes within a couple of weeks, but this time its lasted since august

Anyone had anything similar and found out what it is?

  • I had a similar sounding rash on my face and just went to the dermatologist. He told me that I have a mild case of rosacea and also some perioral dermatitis. Both conditions are chronic but treatable from what I can understand with prescription medications. I'd go see a dermatologist to solve the problem.

  • I have had a rash to appear in my face for 3 days now: on my forehead, cheeks, chin. It is not around my mouth are by my eyes. This rash appears to be small fine bumps with no pus and are not growing to be scary but they are driving me crazy just to see alot of small bumps in my face! They look like they are going back in but they are leaving small black spots now. They have never been painful or even itchy. They have my skin looking and feeling very dry though. Can someone tell me have you had the same to happen?:confused:

  • My husband has had a red rash on his face with raised bumps. At first I just thought it was acne but as I began to look closer I noticed that it presented itself as a bunch of insect bites. He complains of it itching badly. He has tried every thing from benadryl to diaper rash cream and nothing seems to be helping. It starts to go away if he does not shave unfortunately he has to for his job. Has anyone had anything like this or have any idea what it might be? We are desperate for any kind of answer. Thanks
