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 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...

  • well idk what this stuff is REALLY for...but i put "nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide cream usp" on it last night...i woke up and it feels like its gone...i dont have the bumps now...or the dry scally skin as much...im not sure if its because its super thick that its just hiding the problem or if it fixed it...but hopefully....im not even sure if im suppose to be putting this stuff on my face :confused:

  • It looks like what I have! I also do not know what it is.Does it seem to be gone in the am and comes back in the pm for you too? I have a derm appointment on Oct. 10 to see what this is! I used to have flawless skin and don't know what happened!
