Rash on face: Could be several things like rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, even a contact dermatitis to something being used on the face. Scrubbing or vigorous washing of any of these can make them more inflamed and irritated. So first, gentle care with a fragrance-free, soap-free cleanser like cetaphil bar. Any worsening rash should be shown to a dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Reply: Could be two things most commonly among others, impetigo which is a bacterial infection and looks like red bumps with honey colored crusting that needs an antibiotic cream/ ointment like bactroban (mupirocin).

Ok here : Is what you need to do. Rinse your nose with warm water or saline solution. Dry with a q-tip and apply neosporin antibiotic ointment inside the affected nose 3-4 times per day for 7 days. Do not pick your nose! let it heal and you will be good as new. You need to take allergy meds as indicated. ...Read more

I feel like my nose used to be straight. But now when I look at my side profile, It looks crooked and bumpy. Weight loss, age or something else?

I feel like my nose used to be straight. But now when I look at my side profile, It looks crooked and bumpy. Weight loss, age or something else?

You don't give me: your age,but this question is often asked by teen-agers. The bone and cartilage in your nose continues to grow and develop as you mature. If you are older, the change in profile may be due to healing from unrecognized trauma. Weight loss does occur in the face, but there is not much fat in your nose; I doubt that would contribute to bumpiness.If it bothers you, consider a visit to Plastic Surgeon ...Read more

Hard to say: A picture is worth a thousand words and that is certainly true in your case. Most skin diseases need to be seen to be diagnosed. Red spots that last for years could anything from rosacea, cherry angiomas or even skin cancers. I suggest you make arrangements to have a doctor physically look at your skin to make the right diagnosis. ...Read more
