Red Spots On Face Not Acne
Visual DX: Hi, it’s hard to say without a picture but there is a great app that may be able to help you get a diagnosis without being seen in person by a dermatologist. The app is called VisualDX and is one of the best, if not the best out there. Many clinicians, including myself, use it. Just snap a photo and it gives you a list of possible diagnoses. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Neonatal Acne: This is very common and resolves on its own. Neonatal acne (birth - 3 months of life) is a reaction to malassezia yeast as well as the maternal hormones in-utero. This all resolves spontaneously by month 3 of life. Infantile acne (3 - 6months of life) is a bit more complicated but can be treated. However, you should see your pediatrician for help with this. ...Read more
Could Be Anything: With out an exam, it is hard to say from your description. If they have always been there and not changed, then may be small hemangiomas (blood vessels). If they are recent, they could be anything from things similar to pimples, bug bites, fungal infections (ringworm or tinea versicolor), to different types of moles or growths. Have it evaluated at your next doctor visit. Sooner, if changing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many issues: You MUST stop your masturbation and see if this is helpful. If not, please see your primary doctor. PS: I am a bit jealous - I left Sydney in 1974 for a two year program in the USA.

Cauterized Scars: This is a difficult question to answer without knowing the exact depth of the cauterization and why the face was cauterized. Any injury involving the full thickness of the skin should leave a permanent scar. If the outer layers of the skin were cauterized, theoretically there should be minimal scarring. ...Read more
Yes: Ringworm on the face is known as the "great masquerader" so yes it can cause bumps, round scaly patches, pustules and more. Tinea faciale (ring worm) often itches or burns but can be asymptomatic. Consider visiting with a dermatologist to make sure it is not something else that will not respond to anti fungal therapy. ...Read more
Uncertain: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed. ...Read more
Not curable: You must manage your acne until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add some prescription-strength Rx. Since you say you have it only on your face, it's likely that adding a topical antibiotic such as Clindamycin will be sufficient, but if you need something strong, go for it. ...Read more
Scientific Rx: Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated. I see that you already have scarring from your acne having been neglected when you were younger. I'm sorry this happened. At age 19, you're old enough to phone your physician who can add prescription-strength Rx to your benzoyl peroxide regimen. You will probably need to do this. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Post inflammatory: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a common and normal response during the healing process. When traumatized skin heals, redness, followed by dark discoloration often occurs.

My 5 week old baby has red spots and pimples all over her face. Her behaviour has not changed since she got them. Is this normal and will it go away?
Yes: It is extremely common for 4-5 week old babies to get a rash on their faces. It looks very bad, but usually doesn't bother the child at all and generally will disappear within a week or so.
