Dermatology consult: I would recommend a dermatology consult if you have already tried and antifungal and antibacterial treatment. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between a fungal infection vs contact dermatitis vs eczema or other allergic or atopic dermatitis. Since you have had this for 2-3 months, it is time to have a specialist take a look at it if possible. ...Read more

Can very dry skin cause red itchy bumps that look like bug bites? I'm getting sporadic red itchy bumps on face it's very dry and itchy!

Yes: Skin that is very dry can develop irritation. The best treatment would probably be to use a cream that is both an exfoliant and emollient. I generally recommend either a lactic or a glycolic acid cream to help get rid of the dry, rough skin. http://www.OmahaCosmeticSurgery.com ...Read more

I have been using Betasol face cream for 2 weeks now  my face has pimples like rush and they burning and my skin is becoming dry and red and itchy?

Reaction to cream: I am assuming your Betasol contains clobetasol propionate, which is a potent corticosteroid with anti inflammatory properties usually used to treat eczema and psoriasis, but you may be sensitive to that or a different ingredient in the cream.

Need to know more: Although the description is compatible with atopic eczema( since you probably have allergic rhinitis as well as evidenced by the sneezing), it is not possible to tell without a direct examination. Consult an allergist or dermatologist. In meanwhile be sure to bathe daily and apply a skin moisturizer immediately after having sponge dried your skin . ...Read more

Recent trip to the dentist? Family history of connective tissue disorders or autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, or thyroid disease)? Are any of these bumps painful? ...Read more
