Reddish itchy rashes on the face spreading to forehead and groin. Treatment?

I have a rash on my face that has little pin suze red bumps that are inflamed, and itchy with small white heads. When I got in the shower and washed my face (hoping that would help) it spread to my forehead and my groin . What might this be and what can I do to help it? I put A & D ointment on this morning and that seemed to help the inflamation but did not keep it from spreading slowely through the day.

The rash on forehead and spreading to elsewhere would be prurigo simplex.

Multiple factors can cause.

Stress, mental upsets,sun rays, dust,soap ,clothes...etc may be responsible.

You cosult dermatologist for perfect diagnosis.

Antihistaminics like levocetirizine may be taken.

If it is severe, steroids in tapering dose may improve.

Apply mild steroids with antibiotics.

Avoid soap bath.

Have patience and be cool...reduce anxiety and stress.

I think, you may be benefitted.

I hope you got my answer.
