Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, I am a UK GP and happy to help.
Are you able to provide a clearer photo of this rash please?
Okay thanks, ***** ***** do not think the inflamed spot is to do with dermatitis, this could have been a follicle, Often would settle within a week. If sore you could use something like sudacrem, but any sign of it spreading/turning yellow then a topical anti biotic may be better such as Fusidic Acid.
Okay thank you, ***** ***** is rather difficult to see on this photo
Thank you for the photos, sorry for the delay. These changes can be from more chronic inflammation. So there are things you can do to settle it and treat it, therefore hopefully not a permanent thing.
This sort of inflammation can be from dermatitis as you say, in which case a topical steroid may be beneficial. Alternatively get someone to have a closer look incase this could be Rosaces in which case a topical antibiotic would be more beneficial.
Okay, so the treatments are rather different, rosacea uses topical Metronidazole antibiotic cream,
