Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon, I am Dr Elliot. Thank you for your photos. This appears to be a fungal rash rather than an eczematous rash. Is there any facial swelling or the rash only?
Thanks, ***** ***** lives on the skin normally, dry skin can be a route for it to infect the skin. I would suggest topical clotrimazole which you can get from a pharmacy. However as you have said that there is facial swelling, my concern is if this requires antibiotics, but certainly need examining
Would you be able to attend a walk in centre today?
Is the swelling getting worse do you think?
Okay, so this does need reviewing. The one photo you had sent showed evidence of a fungal infection, the second photo of your face looks like there is swelling. If there is swelling, if it is around the eyes then there is a chance this could be a peri-orbital cellulitis. If this is the case, and there is a delay in starting antibiotics, this can damage your eye sight
If you can tell me your nearest town I can find your available options
Okay thank you. Are you able to travel by car?
Okay, well my advise would be get this assessed asap please.
