    Default Weird skin spot/mark on face

    Hi all, hope you are well,

    Over the last few days, our four week old has developed a spot on his face, about the size of a 5c piece. It's a red circle with white dots inside it. We have been to a GP twice and both times she had no idea what it was and prescribed three different creams. None seem to be working.

    I took a photo of it here - http://imgur.com/a/udgVl (for some reason I couldn't add the image here).



    Any input as to what it might be would be helpful. We are trying to get in to see a dermatologist at some point but that may not be for a few days.

    Thanks again.

    Could it be scabies? Does anyone else in your house have a rash like this?

    Go to skin specialist asap

    I don't think so (re scabies). The GP has no idea and has given us three different creams. We are due to see a skin spec tomorrow.
