I am 49 year old female. I weigh 125lbs and am 5'3". I am a nurse and have worked in a healthcare setting for the past 25 years with the last 18 not being at bedside. I am concerned that i have been infected with something in the hospital although i am around young children everyday so i might have gotten a bug from one of them. About three months ago I had what looked like a pimple come up on my chin. I picked at it with a pair of tweezers and now I have these circular raised areas on my face that have a chalky white substance in them. The generally start as a brown,slightly raised blister spot. Much of my face now has an orange peel appearance and the rest has more of the little brown blisters. My chin, outer portion of both sides of my face, where my nose meets my face on both sides is affected.

Thanks for posting your query.

It might not be due to hospital infection.

You should not have pricked with tweezers when you initially developed a pimple over your chin.

Since you did it with out taking precautions it would have spread on to the surrounding area to cause infection.

Chalky white substance in the raised areas would be pustules.

I suggest you not to touch your face with hands on and off.

You can wash your face with a antiseptic soap.

Always use a clean towel and I suggest you to take a antibiotic of penicillin group or cephalosporin group.

You can consult a dermatologist if the lesions persist.

Take healthy diet XXXXXXX in fruits and vegetables and drink more water.

Also never prick the lesions, which would leave a bad scar.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health,
