Hello,

I'm a 30-year-old male. About 4 days ago, I developed a rash that seems to be confined to my neck, shoulders, upper back, and behind my ears. The rash is itchy especially if I scratch it, and it consists of small raised dots that are a pinhead or smaller. They feel slightly oily if I gently massage them. I've noticed a couple of dots on the underside of my forearms and on my hands but only one or two. The rash seems to have improved slightly after showering and using Cetaphil.

My 15 year old son is currently taking Doxylin 100 twice a day for treatment of acne as requested by his skin specialist but has just played sport for 1 1/2 hours and the sweat on his face is stinging more than usual. He has been cleansing his skin twice a day with Cetaphil skin care lotion for oily skin then applying Epiduo Gel 0.1-2.5%, 30g (Adapalene/Benxoyl Peroxide) once at night. Can you please tell me if any of these have side effects of stinging on the face and if so, which one to stop using? Thank you for your time. Much appreciated. Trish
