Rash on Face

I have had a rash on my face, sides of my nose, below the nose and my chin, which has now started spreading to my jaw line. The rash has been there for two months and no matter what I've tried it won't go away. It is tiny bumps and some of the red dots are under the skin. It itches slightly every now and then. Please let me know if you have any idea what it could be and what could be used.

Perioral dermatitis is the clinical impression and would respond to metronidazole gel.Do consult your doc.

Hello,
The symptoms that you have can be due to bacterial folliculitis impetigo or perioral dermatitis. Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis.Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.

If the symptoms are not controlled by topical antibiotics,then oral antibiotics may be needed.Pls consult your dermatologist and discuss this with him.
Hope it helps.Take care and regards.

I broke out  in a rash on my face in April. It seems to be spreading... It's burning and itching. My allergies have been pretty bad lately so I've been taking Zyrtec. I'm wondering if this is a reaction to the Zyrtec or if the Zyrtec helps it calm down. It does calm down then "flare" back up. It's starting to look horrible. I've never had skin problems and Im embarrassed to go in public. Doctor doesn't seem to know exactly what it is. Could it be allergy related??!? I'm desperate to clear it up!!
