I have a skin rash that looks like rosasha or acne but creams for either of those skin problems have not worked. It is on my face and spreads if I itch it. Travocort and Clindets have helped reduce it but not eliminate it. I think it is some sort of infection. It gets itchy. Anyone know what it could be? It is red and sometimes get some puss in the middle of the dots.

This actually sounds like roseacia. I had a small biopsy to check it. I do have it. However, the medication used I was allergic to and it made the condition worse. Because of my high dose prednisone, they thought that would keep it in control. It just itches at times and makes my cheeks red.
You may not have insurance there, but you might have to see someone anyway and pay as you go. This is miserable and really can affect now you feel about yourself. It may also leave scarring and turn a small problem into something more difficult. Let us know how you are faring.
