Hi everyone, I'm new to this site, my name is Kelly and I'm 15 years old and I joined just so i can post this question, but I have been finding other things to help people with and post about too. So here's my question. Hopefully you can help.

I came out of the shower this morning with a strange rash on my face. It did not itch, but it was oily, red and spotty. I covered it up with makeup cause I'm going out today. And the make up barely helped cause it still shows through. Any ideas of what it could be and what can I do about it?

Thanks!

-Kelly

I have had a red spot the size of a dime on my face now for over a year, it has not gotten any larger nor does it itch. At first I was concerned but, after doing some research I found that it may be from anxiety or allergies the water, sun exposure or a number of other things.
My skin is pretty white and therefore sensetive, so I have learned to live with this. For about 2 years now I have little red spots the size of a pinhead on my torso which itch a lot so I use an over the counter itch cream with zinc and that makes me not want to scratch. Sometimes they don't bother me much and at other times they get more severe, it seems to depend on how stressed I am.
I did go to a skin specialist DR. a year ago but she did not know what it was and gave
me a cream (Clobetasol Propionate) which did nothing more than the over the counter creams and after I read the warnings I stopped using it.
So, the bottom line is, if you are concerned, see a dermatologist, or, learn to live with it and hope that it goes away with time. That is what I'm doing.
Good Luck, Joe
