Hello,

As per your case history of red rash on face, my treatment advice is -
1. Avoid sun exposure and use a good sunscreen lotion with SPF more than 30.
2. Apply a mild antibiotic plus steroid cream like fusiderm-b cream twice daily on it.
3. Take an antihistamine medication like levocetrizine for itching.
4. If the problem persists then consult a dermatologist for a differential diagnosis like lupus, rosacea or irritant dermatitis.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harshit Bhachech
