I am a 26 year old female and I have been battling this skin issue for years. I used to have clear skin until this huge pimple like the one shown in the picture popped out on my cheeks. My skin quite often turns red after a shower or after I clean makeup off my face. I have tried a variety of natural remedies to cure it but to no avail. When I went to the doctors they prescribed me topical cream that also didn’t work. I still do not know what this is and I hope you can help me out!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Dear Afiqah,

It is difficult to be sure from the photo what the cause of your rash is. A possible diagnosis is facial eczema.

Often times, if the rash is persistent, there may be a triggering factor or aggravating factor. This includes contact with products that are too harsh or irritating. Sometime, you may even have a contact allegy to creams which is making the rash persist despite using the creams prescribed.

I would suggest you visit your dermatologist/doctor for a detailed examination and to rule out other causes of facial rashes. A patch test can be ordered if a contact allergy is suspected.
