I had a rash in my hair line in middle of forehead. Went to dermatologist and she really didn t know what it is. She game me a steroid shot and cream. The rash and redness is almost gone but the itch is awful. Got the shot four days ago. The itching is driving me crazy. I go back on Feb. 24, 2016. Any idea what it could be. Started out looking like broken blood vessels. Thanks! The spot is about the size of a quarter. I have some pin head size red spots as well. My entire forehead is itching now.

I also have patches of dry, itchy, redness on forehead and cheeks, they dry and flake up and when I remove the dead skin from the forehead, it looks like a shiny red spot. I ve tried olive oil, baby lotion, tea bags on it. I am on several medications, but will a antibiotic help, and maybe fungus cream. Could this be internal or lack of vitamin. This is very itchy, I have to take benadryl but it only relieves the itching for a while. What can I do.

Hi, I have a spot on my forehead that flares up once every like six months. It s right above my left eye. It starts out being red and itchy and then it starts to get raised up and fill with puss. Over the course of a couple days it becomes a very large bump. I ve had this twice before and went to my doctor. He prescribed me an antibiotic and gave me muniprocin to put on it. I can t remember what the antibiotic was called. Once I start the antibiotic and muniprocin, the puss starts to come out and get crusted. It s yellowish in color. Eventually the spot scabs up and heals, but it takes a few weeks for it to completely heal. I want to know what is causing this and how it can be avoided. Originally my doctor told me it was a pimple that got infected, but that can t be the case since this is the third time it s happened in the exact same spot. I know for a fact I didn t have a pimple there and didn t pick anything. Thanks for your help!

I recently had an excision for a superficial spreading melanoma, that did start growing veritically, from my upper right shoulder on my back. I still have stitches and am waiting for this pathology to determine if the margins are clear. Since the excision I have veins that are becoming darker blue under that right arm pit, shoulder and chest area. Even after lots of sunblock and reapplication I did get a sunburn, however the joint of my shoulder and armpit meet where one of these dark blue veins are I burnt around the vein but did not burn on nor about 1/4-1/2 an inch all around this vein. Is this normal or something I should contact the doctor who did my excision? I don t want to bother him if unnecessary, but has been a week since excision and have one more week till I go back to see him.

i am suffering from severe sunburns on my face and hands. Though I apply sunscreen while going out (SPF 50+) I still get sun burns. I am on treatment for curing sunburn. I was applying triglow cream mixed with a moisturizer during day time as well as night about 5 months back as a treatment for hyperpigmentation. I am worried if this sun burn is a side effect of triglow cream. How long will triglow cream have effect on my skin? When will i stop getting sunburns?
