I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?

Hello from JustAnswer.
Could you attach a picture of the facial lesions?

You have not supplied me with an answer for what I thought was a simple question.

I have not supplied an answer because I was seeking a picture of the lesions. There are certain characteristics on which the response should not just be coverage with cosmetics.
