hi. I had contact dermatitis for a while. around my chin. dr gave me elidel, desonate gel and doxycycline. it's all cleared up and i was using the desonate gel here and there as preventive. I learned that because this is a steroid cream it can make it worse. stopped all of that. I took an allergy test and now I'm allergic to fragrance. never had any major skin issues before. I'm 34 years old. last week I noticed some bumps on my forehead. nothing that I could squeeze. my dr gave me a cream with 10% glycolic. first it swelled my eyes and I got some more bumps now on my cheeks. mostly left side that u can see in the light. not sure what it is and I don't think it's acne. I stopped using the cream last night. do you know what this can be. just raised bumps on the skin. some red. some just flesh tone. nothing that has anything in it to squeeze. the dermatitis in chin area is gone - Asked by k s on 13-Aug-2015 06:15:34

    This shoud be some regular allergic reaction to any of the drugs you have used. Try using Aloe vera gel over the lesions. Meet a dermatologist for further advice. You can also try taking an anti allergic medication like Montelukast+LEvocetrizine tablet every night at bed time which can minimise the allergic reactions
