Customer Question

I am coming up to my 40th birthday and my skin is in a terrible state. I am suffering from spots mainly on my chin, jawline and neck. I try and eat healthily and do inject daily with copaxone for MS. What is causing this and what can I do to improve it?

Hello. How long have you had this rash? Does it itch or hurt? Can you upload a picture of it?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


I don't have a rash. Its like spots, as if I'm a teenager. But they look like they are just under the skin with no yellowish head.

Expert:  Dr. Bob replied 4 years ago.
Are they a little tender to pressure?
Did they start before or after starting the copaxone?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


I've had it from before I started the jabs, but not as severe. They look sore because they are very red, but in fact they are not.

Expert:  Dr. Bob replied 4 years ago.
How large are these spots? Are they on both sides of the face? Any spots on the nasal area or under the eyes?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


They are along the jawline chin and the front of my neck. I've also had some on my chest.
