I have a beard and on my cheek under the beard there is a patch of very red skin, about the 1 inch radius.
This has been like this for about 8 months, it is not itchy or painful at all, I barely notice it.
It is very red skin and it develops little yellow spots inside it and sometimes forms a scab and gets a bit dry, eventually the scab falls off, and then the skin is very red and shiny. This seems to repeat itself every 2-3 weeks.
I have tried tea tree oil, dry skin creams, moisturisers but none of these are clearing it up, I have also just left it alone for long periods but it does not heal.
The fact that it has been there for so long I am getting worried now.
