Ive recently returned from a trip away for a while from my turtle and I'm not really sure but I think there is some issues with her skin. Do you guys know what that red patch on her face would be?

Not sure, but maybe dry dock her for a day or two and see if theres any improvement. Any other turtles in her tank?

I would dry dock all day long and let her soak for an hour or so twice a day. Under normal circumstances, RES will bask for a few hours a day.
