Hello doctor,

I am 18 years old, and I have this problem for about two weeks. I think this is because I did not remove my make up after a party and slept off. And the very next day, I got small red pimples on my face. I have this redness or spots on both sides of my cheeks. What could this be? Please give some affordable medicines or cream, but recommend me a good product.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This might be allergic contact dermatitis or cosmetic-induced acne. Make sure that you do not get exposed to that chemical within the next 10 days otherwise there are chances of sensitization and can cause further flare-up of the disease. Apply the following medicines on the affected areas:

  1. Dermitop cream twice daily in a small amount for 10 days.
  2. Use Kz cream once daily for 15 days.

As of now, I am not prescribing any oral medication, but it might be needed if the response to the topical application is poor.
