my face seems to always be red on my cheek area (not from acne, although i still get some acne) it's not bright red or anything, but it looks like i have been out in the cold weather for an hour or two. it's been like this for some time now (maybe 3 months) and it doesn't seem to go away. i havent changed my face wash but even if it was the face wash i would think my forehead would be red too, but thats not the case. do you think it's maybe an allergic reaction? the only thing i could think of is that i have developed lactose intollerance, but i have never been so it seems unlikey. any ideas? also, my diet has been relatively unchanged.

  • It may be Rosacea. Rosacea appears on the cheeks, nose and forehead usually. At the start, you may only have one red patch on one cheek, progressing to two... later enlarging to cover most areas of your face, these red patches are most likely to stay for a long period of time, sometimes becoming permanent if the face is flushed too long. Extreme temperatures and windy weather may redden the skin and the red patches should be itchy. Alcohol should also be avoided.
