Rash Face Rid
My baby face has rashes for weeks now, and now its dry, what could cause this and what can I do to prevent this? Shes 1 1/2 month now..
Could be normal: Babies this age can get a rash that is called neonatal acne. And well, it looks like small acne lesions. It is caused by hormonal changes and usually resolves on its own. If there is any family history of eczema, it could be the start of this, and it feels like patchy or it could be something you are applying to your baby's skin that she is reacting to. See the baby's doc to make sure. ...Read more
The cause: You need to find out the cause. For a woman, facial cosmetics particularly perfumes and foundation mix are the most common contact allergens in my experience. Avoidance is essential since applying even more potent cortisone cream than Hydrocortisone would not help you without avoidance. Consult a dermatologist if necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Acne: You are still during the period of time in life where acne can flourish significantly.

i got red rashes and red spot small small spots (pimple)on my face i think its because I use bleach on yesterday, how to get rid of it immediately?
Contact dermatitis: Avoidance of the bleach will prevent the recurrence of symptoms. Moisturizer and/or a barrier cream like Aquaphor will help to heal. A short course of over the counter topical steroid cream may help with a contact dermatitis. To be positive it is not something else, I would recommend consulting your primary care physician. ...Read more

Not acne: Skin asthma is eczema or atopic dermatitis. This condition, which is marked by the skin being overly sensitive to specific irritants, typically affects people predisposed to allergies or asthma. Do not use Benzoyl peroxide! It’s very irritating, it will worsen your condition. You may need a non-steroidal cream such as Protopic to reduce the flair up, then Aquafor as a moisture barrier. ...Read more
