Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Would a photograph of the affected area be possible at your convenience?
Thank you for the photograph. No this does not look like an allergic reaction to silicone. It could be Facial Folliculitis (basically an infection of skin pores or hair follicles on the face) or Atypical Acne. Silicone based products occlude the skin and can cause both these problems on occasion.
I would suggest applying Bacitracin ointment twice a day on the affected area and taking Tablet Claritin 10 mg once or twice a day depending on the severity of the itching. Do this for a week and see how the lesions heal - both products are available over the counter without a prescription.Please feel free to ask if you have any queries. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
You're most welcome. You can try using a MAC or Clinique concealer but till the areas flatten out and calm down a bit they will be hard to conceal.
