Skin Problem


Hi Dr,

For the past 8 or so years I have had rash appear just on my forehead regardless what season it is. Sometime it seems like the rash (very small) has water. I did seek medical help from two dermatologists and during the time I was on treatment my skin cleared nicely. I don’t want to keep going to dermatologists I want to be able to treat my own skin with products I can probably get over the counter. I try and take care of my health, water intake, gym etc.

please help

Hi there Duduzile. Thank you for your enquiry. Without knowing what exactly the rash is or what you were treated with by your dermatologists, it is very difficult for me to give you any advice. Do you know if you were given steroid creams or what was used on you? Without that I can only really guess what the condition may be and that is not really going to help you. I would love to help you with good product prescription that can help you prevent this problem, but in order for me to do so, I’m going to need to see you. Are you near enough to one of our Skin Renewal Branches for me or one of our doctors to see you? Let’s try and sort out this problem for you once and for all! Have a look at and see what the closest branch is to you, all our contact details are available there as well.

From Masoodah Ebrahim


I’ve been suffering from acne my entire teen and tween years, at some point in my teens it got to a state whereby it was classified as severe acne and put on a very strong dosage of Roacuttane… thankfully it’s cleared with normal breakouts when it’s that time of the month. My main issue is I can never find a product that agrees with my skin or that actually clears up the oiliness and dry patches. Is there a skin care regiment that I can follow or a product that can help? PS: I’m exceptionally hairy as well and low threshold for pain.

I have oily skin and get breakouts, but my main concern is my pores. They are fairly noticeable and I’m really not happy with them. Will regular facials help and what kind should I do?

Question from Lizelle Lloyd


Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)
