Question: I have rosacea like symtoms on my cheeks and nose,but I also have skin coloured bumps on my forehead these bumps seem to be in a row. when I put my ball cap on my skin swells like a hive just where the hat band is. Yesterday I stood out in the wind for about ten minutes and blood blister like rash formed on my forehead. I went inside and it went away in about five minutes. Do you have any ideas what this could be?

Thanks for posting your query.

The skin colored bumps may either be due to Acne vulgaris or may be due to ordinary skin infections with staphylococci. In the presence of infection there may be mild edema, which will be obvious when you put your cap; especially in the forehead area mild edema also will look prominent due to the loose tissue there. If you consult a Dermatologist he/she will give appropriate antibiotics for Staphylococcus infection or for acne and rule out any precipitating cause like immune suppressive drugs, diabetes etc. Then you will become alright completely.

Your problem of rosacea and blister following exposure to cold wind indicates that you may likely to have hypersensitivity to sunlight and cold. The dermatologist will also guide you how can you protect yourself from such environment.

Nothing serious.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if you need further clarifications.

Get well soon...

I was on Yasmin birth control for about 16 years and decided to stop taking it a couple of months ago. This is actually the third time I've stopped over the years because each time I do, I get a bumpy rash behind my ears, on the side of my neck, and on my forehead. It doesn't appear as normal acne does and progressively gets worse and itches. Why would this be happening each time I stop?

Hi, I have been using otocomb ointment on some acne sores on my face now for about 4 years. It ususally clears them up in a couple of days and I just use this every 2nd night on the spots only. But I think it is causing some pigmentation problems on my face now. Could this be the cause of it? Thanks

Hi there, I started taking birth control May 2012 and I stopped taking in November 2013. In March 2013 I noticed a lump above my right breast. In July 2013 I had it removed for precautionary measures. I decided in November 2013 that I would stop taking it. This year, starting in February till now, I have had many issues with acne/cystic acne around my mouth/jawline. I am debating to go back on the pill to help with this acne, however, I do not want to get another lump (in case that was what caused the first one). Please advise.
