Spot on face: a 10 year old is not likely to have skin cancer present for just a few weeks. it sounds like an inflammatory skin condition which can be treated by your family doctor.

Bruising and itch: if anyone scratches hard enough you can elicit purpura , better known as brusining under the skin. the best thing for you to do would be to treat the itching and rash .patients that are increasingly prone to purpura are those on aspirin and blood thinners. but do not go off of these without your doctors consent

Shampoos: it depends on what type it is . if it is a steroid containing shampoo, to be on the safe side, limit it to 3 times a week. other shampoos can theoretically be used daily but patients generally do not like the look of the hair after daily use of anti dandruff shampoos. consider them a medication and use three times weekly. consult your doctor if that does not relieve your condition.
