Red patchy skin
Hi - I have a question for you ..... My friend has had an obvious skin problem for ages, the skin on the sides of her face are red and patchy but not itchy at all and has been like that for quite some time. She was wondering what she could do to prevent this or if there is any kind of treatment.

Thanks!

Hi,
You need to ask your friend to consult a dermatologist.
The patchy skin could be due to sun damage, a persistent birth mark, a persistent skin allergic reaction or some pathological skin lesion. For a confirmed diagnosis, you would need a skin specialist to have a look at it. The further treatment and management would depend on the confirmed diagnosis.
Till she gets a confirmed diagnosis, advise her to use an effective medicated sunscreen several times a day.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
