I noticed some red marks on my face over the last few months. The come and go but they're mainly on my forehead and nose. Is there anything that can remove them?

    Various questions might help.

    1. "Last few months" - would that be since about mid-March this year? In which case - could be Lockdown stress.

    2. Matching something else bad that's happened in your life - but of the personal variety? Could be personal stress.

    3. Are you wearing/being made to wear masks? - Some peoples skins are being badly affected by the area covered by the mask - wondering if there are people also affected on the rest of their face?

    4. Allergy to cosmetic you recently started using?
    There are trolls around - unfortunately - but I wait for them to go off and "self combust" or have a go at someone else to fulfil their hobby they have - rather than doing "feed the trolls".
    Please bear in mind these people exist - and take it into account.

    Wake UP - now!!

    What does your GP say?

    Right now - I am guessing OP's GP is extremely difficult (trans. = impossible) to get to see? and that's why they are asking here.

    I gather GP's often are very difficult to get to see anyway and then Lockdown and multiply that difficulty by a factor of "goodness-knows-how-much" to actually get to physically see a doctor.

    I'm just only too grateful to be one of the ones not needing to see a doctor - as I know I would be extremely worried about just how to manage to do so right now...and the answer seems to boil down to "Pay some money for a private one - and have the facilities to do it online" and many of us either don't have that money available and/or haven't got the camera set-up to be able to have the GP "see us" online.

    Don't guess.
    I've asked the OP what his/her GP says.
    Until they reply, neither you nor I know whether the OP's GP is extremely difficult (trans. = impossible) to get to see or not.
    I have a couple of friends who have been able to have a video call with their GPs and have been prescribed medication which has resolved the problem.

    And - it is not allowed to ask for

    I doubt that policy has changed even during covid.

    If he can't get to discuss it with his  GP- mine is telephone appointments then face to face if deemed necessary- try your local pharmacist if thy are now doing consultations again.
