On the side of my face, almost near the sideburn area there's a circular..area about 3/4" in diameter that is darker than the rest of my face, it's a brownish-reddish color accompanied by bumps scattered around it. It's been there for quite some time; at first I thought it was hyperpigmentation but it's more red than brown and that wouldn't explain the bumps. It almost has a scaly appearance if you look really close.

What is it, and how can I treat it? Any advice would be appreciated. I'm sure with the ambiguity of the description I'll have to answer some questions.

Yeah, maybe you could post a pic. Something like this happened to me and I didn't know what to do so I put a little cortizone 10 on and it went away in a couple days. It could be anything. Sorry know that didn't help.

I have no clue, looks like a reaction to something that touched your skin, since its just in that one area (right). I wouldn't freak out and change up your regimen or anything. Try some cortizone 10 on it or another cream for allergic skin reactions, there a lot of choices at your drugstore, just dont use cortisone for too long it can damage skin, but thats after like a year of constant application. Weird.
