Hello, I'm 18 years old, europian (romanian) ,I started having acne when I way 14.5 a year later I started to have reddish cheeks, now when the acne is gone for the last 6 months I don't have even a one zit but my cheeks are reddish.
My cheeks not always reddish , sometimes you need to use a magnyfing glass to notice that, but after a shower/workingout/shaving the reddish is notice able.
Now I have few questions:
1)Do you think I have rosacea? I though people get rosacea in their 40s.
2)Can I get tann ? or it will just make the reddiness worse, and I should just stay out of the sun.
3)Will it ever stop and I could go to the beach and get tann?
4)Maybe peeling will help?

I love the beach and I love to get tanned, but if tanning is bad for me, and in the future will make the redness on my cheek worse , tell me and I will hide from the sun (if it will stop the reddiness from getting worse)

Its very importent to me, I am looking forward for your answers.

  • I believe it is rosacea. I have it and you need to go to a dermatologist. After is it under control you'll have to watch to sun exsposure. Use at face lotion with an spf 15 everyday. Treatment us usually very easy. Either medicine for a few months or a facial cleanser and face lotion. Hope this helps.
