Signs & Symptoms: small red dryskin like acne that scabs over and slowly spreads I think. Scabs easily fall off and then acne produces fluid and rescabs. The scabs don't seem to heal back to normal. On lower right cheek/chin.
Pertinent past medical history: none that I know of.
Last oral intake: Fairly good diet, fruit, veggies, cafe food from uni.
Events associated with or leading up to this injury or illness: I first realized this acne about 3 weeks ago. I was watching a movie in a friends room and I made popcorn in my microwave. A bit of the salt dripped onto my bed sheets around where my head would sit. The next morning I noticed this rash on my face. I thought it was dry skin but It scabbed over and has been falling off and rescabbing for 3 weeks. I have a hard time telling if it's spreading.

Weird Acne/Rash on face for 3 weeks
A doctor is probably the only one that could diagnose it. But it does look like some kind of allergy.
I would get it checked, oddly enough staph is pretty common on the face, because people touch it so much.
Try not shaving it, and use a mild soap to clean it, if it isn't getting better in a couple days go see a doc.
