I have been to two dermatologists to diognose and treat a skin condition on my face. First thought it was roseca and the second said it was dermatitis. I have tried many different prescriptions and home remedies.The strange part is it stays contained to one or two areas of my face and will clear up and move to another spot. My entire face has not been clear for 2 years. The area is red and has small pimple like texture. But does not come to a head. Also seems to be leaving acne like scars once the area clears up.

    Derm stake a biopsy hat will definately determine which you have. However both are treated the same. Do not use steroids on your face often. It can thin the skin.

      Neither derm did any type of testing they just looked At the skin. Didn’t even ask me to remove make up which I found surprising

    You may want to get tested for Lupus because the skin on my face started doing the same thing when i was 22 & i was diagnosed with it

    Dermatitis is inflammation of the skin. Depending on the type of dermatitis, areas of skin may become red and itchy with some acute attacks causing crusty scales or blisters that ooze fluid.
