I have a rash on right side of my face. It started about 5-6 weeks ago on my ears. Right side progressed from small to a large patch. Its spreading in circular fashion and effecting my right eye. My gp gave me some cream for it to no use. What is it?

Based on the way it's evolved, it sounds like you may have a fungal infection & I suspect your doctor can prob tx that without much problem, or will connect you with the right physician.

However, given the potential seriousness of rashes with the drug, I would get checked out with a dermatologist as soon as you can. ...Read more
