I've been experiencing what I can only describe as red skin on my cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead with some bumps (not pimples... just red bumps) on top of it. I swear that how bad the redness is changes constantly... that it's different each morning, sometimes it changes from worse to better (or vice versa) throughout the day!

One day it was so bad that it looked almost like a sunburn. I used a scrub with tea tree oil on it and it cleared up a bit. It sounds like rosacea to me, but does rosacea get better and worse over such short periods of time?

I've had problems similar to this in the past, but never this bad.

I also have an eyelid that peels daily(I've had this for years but have never gotten it looked at). I know eye symptoms can be part of rosacea. I'm unfortunately away from my family doctor for another month or so and am really curious what's wrong with my face.

Thanks =)
