Customer Question

I woke up this morning with a rash on my face. It's warm and itchy. Small bumps all over it. I have no idea what caused it and no idea what to do about it. Is there anything I can do to calm this down? I have to go to work!

You can try some self care measures like
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin.
Also apply cool compresses with cool water.
Calamine lotion,OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with Bacitracin can be tried.
Possible causes may include Irritant dermatitis,seborrhoeic dermatitis,Urticaria.
You should however consult a dermatologist to make a particular diagnosis for the rash. Depending on the specific cause for the rash, other specific treatments like antifungals or corticosteroid creams will be necessary.
If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.
