Hi

I have reviewed the attached photograph and need to ask you few questions for specific guidance:

Do you have itching on the rash?
Have you used or applied anything new on the chin area?
Did you notice any bumps on the chin prior to the eruption of the rash?

Kindly revert back with the answers.
