Hi there, I have a rash on my forehead that comes and goes and is quite aggressive in the mornings, sometimes small painful white pimple appear, I also have a sort of irritating burning sensation in my hands the sort you get after touching cleaning products. Any idea what these are and if linked, tried rosacea cream and epi derm cream to no avail

Thabks for the pics. They do look like acne rosacea. But there is also likely bacterial infection involved. Hence an antibiotic like clindamycin will help with the recovery. Please see a dermatologist as well if possible. Best wishes
