OK, Has a doctor looked at this and any possibility of posting a photo on this page? Have you had any tests run?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

my doctor has looked at it and gave me cream eurax hc cream no tests run I am dark skinned you could tell on a photo

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK. Since the cream you're using hasn't helped, this is probably rosacea--adult acne. You need to ask for oral doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for two weeks to clear it up and I would also have you take either Zantac or Claritin to relieve the burning feeling while this heals
