Mysteries eczema/rash/other - HELP

As my post says I have gotten some kind of eczema that has evolved over a period of 3 weeks now. I have had two prior incidents of this kind of eczema or whatever it is during the past 18 months, and i have never been able to get to the bottom of what it is.

It basically starts out as the most innocent looking pimple you could imaging, and then it grows in size from there. This time I've tried my best to document the entire period of the thing in order to reach out and ask for help with this since my doctor, family and friends have never seen anything like it before.

From my two previous experiences its been a characteristic that the very center of it has to "dry out" so i am able to peal it of before the whole thing will even begin to heal up. I sincerely hope that someone out there knows what this might be. Thanks!

Hi dazisnotsogood.

It doesn't itch and it is only located in that one place, unfortunately right on the cheek.

I am taking pills containing adrenocortical hormone/adrenal cortex hormone since my doctor believes that its some kind of eczema.

Thanks for your thoughts on this!


Hi ShawnDK,

This looks very nasty. As dazisnotsogood says, you need to see your doctor again.

Even if your doctor believes that this is eczema you may need to be seen by a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.

Skin conditions often look alike, and can be difficult to diagnose via visual examination alone. A skin biopsy may be necessary.

Let us know how you get on,



Hi Shell

When I wrote doctor i meant my dermatologist doctor. Sorry for my English.

I'm getting more and more afraid that this turns out to be skin cancer. I still don't se an improvement in the area. I'm gonna look into what the steps are for getting testet for skin cancer these next work days.


Hi ShawnDK,

It must be such a worry for you. I hope you get an accurate diagnosis soon.

I had a suspicious mole removed from my abdomen some years ago. It turned out to be a form of non-melanoma called basal cell carcinoma, and was easily removed.

Hi everyone. So my dermatologist forwarded me to a specialized skin facility at Bispebjerg hospital. They told me that they are sure that it is an infection with either staphylococci or streptococci. They put me om a 10 day penicillin plan that I've just finished.

Although the area on my cheek has diminished, it already began to heal a couple of days before i got on the antibiotics so i have seriously doubts about the pills being the "cure".

I would like to post a picture of how it looks now but i don't know how to if possible?
