help with facial skin rash (photos attached)

hi I've had this rash for a few weeks now. I've tried hydrocortisone and bactoban without success.

To me it doesn't look fungal, does anyone think it's rosacea?

Unfortunately I can't get in to see the dermatologist for about 6 weeks and my local doctor doesn't have a clue.

Re: help with facial skin rash

No bactoban, that looks like a contact dermatitis. My best guess would be poison ivy, but there is none in Australia, far as I know! Could you possibly have touched something you were allergic to? Makeup or anything else? Does it itch? Have you tried taking antihistamines?
