Touch : Touch up procedures are not common as these procedures are tattoos. However, there will be some fading or spreading of pigment over time as your body attempts to remove the tattoo. Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md.

No: Eczema is absolutely not contagious. It is an auto-immune disorder which means it is caused by your immune system attacking your own skin. There is no way to spread it to someone else since it is not caused by a bacteria or a virus.

What should I look for in a foundation or makeup to know that it wont make my acne worse?

"Non-comedogenic": Look for the term "non-comedogenic" -- meaning that the product lacks ingredients known to worsen acne in most people. Key word being "most" people, as no product can have a 100% guarantee in all people. Avoid heavy & oil-containing products (including your moisturizer & other face products), as these tend to worsen acne.

Acne & makeup: Yes. Clogged pores contribute to acne. Certain makeups can clog pores. "non-comedogenic" makeups are those lacking ingredients known to clog pores in most people. The key word being "most" people... Since some people can still experience acne even when using "non-comedogenic" products.

Yes: Anything which clogs your pores can create acne. Use a mineral make-up that contains natural anti-bacterial. Don't leave makeup on overnight, use an defoliant at night and use a good, inexpensive face wash. Hard to beat cetaphil.
