Doctor can evaluate: If a rash on the face is only where the acne medications and cleansers are being used, it could be a reaction to the acne items. If there are also no other ill symptoms at all, a person might stop the acne items and wait 2-3 days before seeing her primary care doctor or her dermatologist. If there are other symptoms going on, or if symptoms are worrisome, her primary care doctor can evaluate now.
