My neck is constantly red. It has been like this for about 4 years. I asked my doctor about it and she told me that its harmless and there is no real cause. We could run test and find nothing. So I live with it and I hate it. Anyone know what this problem is? My blood pressure is better than normal.

There is nothing he could do for it though he said he could recommend a plastic surgeon! Like I can afford that! Sooo, I use a make-up nutralizer under my make-up that softens the redness. Good Luck!

  • You need to find a dermatologist. They can tell you why your neck is red, and if they have the type of practice that does cosmetic derm, they can treat with an IPL or laser.
