The skin is often an indicator that abnormal processes are taking place in the body. So, frequent rashes in the T-zone can indicate problems with the digestive tract, on the cheeks, and on the chin – hormonal disruptions and disorders in the intestines.

According to the expert, rashes that often appear on the forehead in most cases appear due to poor hygiene or improperly chosen means for cleaning the scalp.

In this case, you should pay attention to the food, and also consult a doctor to rule out diseases of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder and intestines and conduct a clinical blood test. The fact is that with frequent rashes in this area, an increase, for example, in reference indicators of liver enzymes (AST and ALT), as well as manifested genetic diseases, is possible, ”said Dr.
