For the last few years my face is almost always red , and I mean the entire face from the scalp line to my neck and extends a bit to the top of the chest. Now for years i have had a red nose and recently the skin above my checkbones is extra red an blotchy. I suppose that is roseca however should I worry about the rest of the face being red all the time?

  • Red nose and hands could be early Raynaud's. Do they get cold??.If not cold, then its not Raynauds. Lupus and other issues, like Lyme Disease cause red ness/ rashes . I wouldn't assume it was roseca, with out conformation. Could also be an allergy to something your using on your face. Please get tested by a doc, before other problems appear. Good luck.

  • Actually Raynaud's sound exactly what my hands have. For as long as I can remember my hands look horrible in winter, they get blue patches are are very cold. it does not bother me really. I think I remember someone mentioning Raynauds years ago now that i mention it.
