Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. Please answer a few questions for me. Is the rash itchy? Has there been any bleeding? Have you tried applying any creams, ointments or medications on it? How large an area is involved, about the size of a 1 quid coin, bigger, smaller? As to the location, is that behind the ear? where the ear meets the face? Please clarify, as location often helps in identifying the type of rash. Thank you in advance for your replies.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
