I had an inflamed patch of pink skin on may face on both sides of the nose (on the upper cheeks) and several small pink bumps. This was itchy as well. The doctor prescribed prednisone and it cleared up with that. But the small pink bumps returned after two weeks (although in much milder form) and I seem to have got a few of these now on my neck and shoulders as well. The doctor says this is a bacterial infection and has prescribed an antibiotic now. However, I am concerned whether the diagnosis is right and what could be the real cause and treatment of this problem?

Hello. I have intense burning on the skin of my face, (forehead, nose area and cheeks). It causes profuse sweating and discomfort. It feels like chilie pepper has been rubbed on my face. This has been happening for about a week. It starts sudenly and seemingly without any cause. Then it lasts for about 30 min to one hour. Then it subsides. Today, has lasted for several hours.

My son is a year & 3 mos. old. He had high grade fever ranging from 38.8 to 38.2 the last 2 days. He has colds, & swollen gums which believe may be due to teething. Anyhow I have given him paracetamol every 4 hrs. & nasal decongestant. I have also cleaned his mouth & gums with an otc xylitol & applied daktarin since he seems to be developing mouth sores. The fever has subsided & so far has not risen. But my main concern is that his skin surrounding the left eye seems to be inflammed. Do we get cellulitis in that area. And if we do, how can it be treated?!
