Red itchy rash along jawline, below cheek, blotchy skin, no dietary or cosmetic changes. Causes?

I have developed a red, itchy, rash along my jawline just below my cheek. It was almost in a straight line parallel to my jaw bone when I first noticed it this morning although it wasn t itchy. When I got home from school a little had disappeared so it was more blotchy and patchy yet it had begun to itch. I haven t used any new products and have not eaten or inhaled anything I know i am allergic to.

Thanks for writing to us.

Atopic dermatitis is an allergic manifestation which gets precipitated by warm climate and sweating.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ dermatologist and should go for thorough check up. Treatment depends on clinical examination.
You should apply parmethrin lotion along with calamine on affected site.
You can use steroid ointments. Long-term management may include treatment with an allergist to control internal allergies and a dermatologist to monitor the skin-care component.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
