I have a small non itchy rash on my chin

Patient

Q: I have a small non itchy rash on my chin. It could be allergic reaction to my acne cream. Also could be poison ivy. But could it be herpes??

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Itchy rash on the chin can be due to many diseases as you have rightly mentioned- the allergy to anything, poison ivy and herpes.
Herpes rash is very typical.
I think it is better to apply nothing as most of the rashes are self-limiting.
Please consult a Doctor as a visual impression of the lesion alone can get us the diagnosis.
You can also post a picture attached to such a query so that a clear picture can give us an idea as to what it is.

I hope this answer helps you.
