In 1996 I was diagnosed with dermatamyositis...very mild case and was treated with prednisone for about one year. All symptoms have disappeared and no flare-ups since. I did lose some hair and had a small bald spot which I attributed to the prednisone, and I had some red spots on my face but they were not noticeable and although did not go away completely they did seem to fade. But in the last 6 months, these areas on my face (only on the left side) have gotten redder and larger, mainly along my hairline on the side, over the eyebrow,one area under my eye and one round spot a little lower from that. Also, the bald spot has never gone away and I have some mild itching with it. I don't think it is from the dermatamyostis as I have no other symptoms and these were not the initial symptoms anyway, they just appeared within that year and I just assumed they were associated with it. This is only on one side of my head- the red spots and the baldness and also the eye on that side is a "dry" eye, often feeling irritated. Any ideas? Thanks
I've had these red craters on my face for about a year. I don't know what they are and how they got there. I tried clearasil and other products for a while but none of them seem to work. What's the best method of taking this stuff out?
I have these dry red blotches all over my face; especially around the chin area and on my cheeks; although i use an astringent to wash my face and have for years, do you think that could be "stripping" some of my pores so much that it causes these blotches? or maybe it's because i just got my period?
