I have a rash on my face, is it a skin infection?

Had a rash appear on my chin two weeks or so go I thought it was deep cystic acne as it was very swollen red and hot with and orange coating over the top. it’s now scabbed and
Healed but I’ve not come out with it on my cheek? they are very sore to touch love
Never suffered from acne so maybe it’s a
Skin infection?
Medications: Sertraline 150mg

Did you have unprotected sex with a new partner any time lately?
Any insect bite? Or new soap?
Many causes can show exact same rash like HIV, staff infection, allergic dermatitis or flea bites
Good Luck

Yes, it can be either due to infection or allergic reaction causing dermatitis..
You can consult an Emergency room and get evaluated.
You can apply an antibiotic ointment along with benadryl cream over it..
Do cool compresses..
Avoid applying any harsh chemical cosmetics over the skin..

Hope this helps..

In my opinion it could be a sting by an insect, i see but not clearly a black spot in the middle of the big rashes…
Where donyou live?
