Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I've had a rash on my face for about 2 months now that is concentrated mostly from the left side of my mouth almost down to the chin. I've used tea tree oil with some benefit, but it still only will dry up a little and never completely goes away. It is fairly red most of the time and sometimes will have bumps that look like pimples. It doesn't hurt or itch, but being 52 years old, it's pretty embarrassing. I've made a dermatologist appt., but have had to wait 6 weeks to get in. My new primary care doctor didn't have a clue. Could the dextroamphetamine be causing this rash?
