a rash on the side of my face
« on: November 21, 2010, 12:31:10 PM »
hi Sarah I woke up yesterday and there was a rash on the side of my cheek about the size of a dime it's tiny little blisters and I think it was due to me using a powder on my face that was probly over a year old the night before. Anyway I put ice on it and lemon to see if it'll go away and this morning it looks worse and warm to the touch. What could this be and how can I get rid of it? This is really gonna ruin my thanksgiving it sucks AND I won't be able to use my dermaroller til it goes away ugh. thank you in advance you've been very helpful. Anna.

Highly likely it's either a bacterial or a fungal infection. I'd wager bacterial, having developed inside the powder. You should keep the area dry. And use Betadine cream on it. Being Iodine-based, it effectively kills both fungi and bacteria. If you can't get Betadine, try another Iodine-based cream.
