No, I just noticed it one morning in the mirror

the size doubled in the last month
is it flat or can you feel it when you touch it?
very small elevation, a bit more rough and tens then surrounding skin
Is someone still there?
alright, thanks a lot for your response.after seeing the picture, i have come to a probable diagnosis of:-1. eczema2. polymorphous light eruption3. psoriasis.is there any flaking of skin that you had seen?
yes i am still here i asked you a few queries.after seeing the picture, i have come to a probable diagnosis of:-1. eczema2. polymorphous light eruption3. psoriasis.is there any flaking of skin that you had seen?
ok thanks. this is then most likely a polymorphous light eruption, its an allergy to the sun. its not necessary to have a lot of sun exposure to cause this type of lesion. it can happen with small amounts of exposure at the same site daily too. its a classic site for the polymorphous light eruption. its a harmless condition.i would recommend that you try to treat it with cortisone cream applied twice a day for 2 weeks. a polymorphous light eruption will show improvement.the cream is available over the counter.also please use a sunscreen regularly on the face.it will be the best to treat it.please let me know your queries.regards
