Beginning of acne: It sounds like she has the beginning of acne. If you are using a shampoo that's oily stop it. It could be causing the rash on her forehead. In the meantime make an appointment to see a dermatologist for her.

My brother in law has low platelet 80'000 and high MPV, he has a very bad rash (very red)on his face and his forehead and it has pimple. Can u tell me y?

He needs to ask: Your brother in law needs to get with his personal physician (s) and figure out what's going on. He may already know and be keeping it to himself. With this rash and platelet count, he may have lupus -- a fact he might not wish to share -- or they may be unrelated. He needs to tell his physician what medications he's taking, and be willing to undergo a workup for some immune & marrow problems.

How post scabies manifested? Are there new rashes, new white head pimples, crawling?

Infected scabies: Sorry your question is not clear. Yes scabies can get infected. New pimples would probably be a different thing, Irrespective of that antibiotics would be needed.

If...: If you are not responding to the antibiotics prescribed and still feeling sick you should see your doctor again for reevaluation. However, make sure you gave at least 48 hrs for the antibiotics to start working. If not yet 48 hrs you should wait unless you are feeling extremely ill.

My daughter has tiny, whitehead like bumps in her head like bumps in her head. Could it be something more than a rash?

My daughter has tiny, whitehead like bumps in her head like bumps in her head. Could it be something more than a rash?

Maybe: That is tough to answer without seeing it. White bumps in a newborn can be nothing significant. In an older child could be just a rash...A virus...If they are tender that is a concern. Are they on the scalp? Or on the hair shaft in which case we think of nits. Is it in the hairline or in the hair? A great question and best answered with a face to face visit with your pediatrician.

18 days old developed an allergy that looks like baby acne. Do babies develop this condition weeks after birth? Rash is only on forehead and cheeks.

18 days old developed an allergy that looks like baby acne. Do babies develop this condition weeks after birth? Rash is only on forehead and cheeks.

Baby acne: The baby acne is a common event that reflects hormones transferred during the pregnancy. While the baby is floating in moisture, the skin is will not respond, but within 1-3 weeks after birth they break out for many weeks until the hormone levels drop & the acne disappears. Keeping the skin clean ; avoiding irritating soaps helps. It has no relationship to allergy. If it persists > 3mo see the doc

Can the "Rash phase" in HIV seroconversion cause forehead acne without having any other rash on other parts? Low risk + other symptoms

Get tested: As I stated earlier, symptoms of HIV are too variable to be relied on for diagnosis. HIV does not cause acne, however, if you have any doubt, get tested.

Acne form rash: You should see a dermatologist to have your rash evaluated. It could be acne, rosacea, folliculitis, impetigo or a number of other common and uncommon rashes. The pustules should be cultured to see if a particular type of bacteria is causing them.

Fordyce spots or HSV: Fordyce spots are common and a result of visible sebaceous glands. These are benign lesions. Genital herpes or other sexually transmitted diseases must be considered and this warrants a proper examination from your local dermatologist.

Possible skin cyst: Or raised mole. Please see your doctor; they can then actually look at it and tell you what it is and what to do for it. It's hard to say for sure what it is without seeing it.
