Simple rashes on the face, which are known as dermatitis, or contact dermatitis, typically improve simply by using gentle skin care. Dermatitis means an inflammation of the skin, and for these types of rashes, they will generally improve by using simple and gentle skin care. To treat simple rashes, use only gentle cleansers on the skin with no harsh soaps or abrasives. You should gently cleanse the skin rather than scrubbing it. To avoid irritation, use cool to warm water rather than hot, then gently pat dry. After washing your face leave the skin exposed to the air, to air dry.
If you have recently bought any new cosmetics that might be causing the problem or could irritate the problem, you should stop using them. It is also always best not to begin using any new skin care products, including makeup, when you are trying to get rid of a rash. There are over-the-counter products such as calamine lotion that can be a benefit to most simple rashes, and hydrocortisone creams. Hydrocortisone reduces inflammation of the skin and helps with the itch and irritation.
