Hi I have this small itchy bumps with white top on my left cheeks scattering all over my face 2 days now.

Hi I have this small itchy bumps with white top on my left cheeks scattering all over my face 2 days now.

More details: Since only the left cheek is affected (or is the whole face involved?), I suspect that this may be from a sensitivity to sunlight. Have you recently introduced a new facial cosmetic which may lead to a photosensitive skin reaction after sun exposure? If both cheeks are involved, one needs to consider rosacea. You may well need to consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

If you develop large and itchy hives, the condition is known as solar urticaria. The treatment is the same- avoid sun exposure. ...Read more
