If anyone can offer some advice I would be enormously grateful.
Around 8 - 10 weeks ago, I got some spots on my cheeks, and my skin went very dry. I also experienced facial flushing. The spots aren't the usual 'whitehead' style that I've occasionally suffered - they are very red and have no head. Some swell and weep a small amount of clear discharge, mainly after a shower, and then develop a small scab.
The spots disappear quickly - often within a few hours, but leave a paler mark in their place which is giving me an uneven skin tone.
I have been to the GP twice, but since the spots fade fairly rapidly she said it wasn't serious - in fact she told me that it was a minor cosmetic issue and I should be grateful that I didn't have something 'really noticeable'! Cosmetic or not, it is bothering me and I'd love some advice.
I have tried, with some success, repeated use of antiseptics, (Savlon Cream and bathing with TCP). These have reduced the outbreaks, but the spots return almost overnight if I discontinue.
