The rashes might have appeared due to some food you ate, due to some insect bite, some make-up material you applied or some material you came in contact with, etc. When such a situation occurs on your face, you may feel (it is very common to feel such) embarrassed and won’t come out of your house very often; on top of that, the rashes are itchy.
You will know that you have to face rash when your cheeks turn red and ‘flushed’ (of course, you should not be feeling any other emotion when this is noticed!) or when small itchy bumps start to appear.
Causes Of Rashes
- Insect Bites,
- Excessive Sweating,
- Small blisters or bumps on the skin
- Burning or stinging sensation
- Inflamed skin
