Re: help - Red Face Thing

You may have Rosacea. Have you seen a dermatologist for your problem?

Other than rosacea, are you drinking enough water? Are you washing your face with something that may irritate your skin? Is it always red or do you notice it more when you are warm?

My best suggestion is to see your dermatologist and see if it is rosacea. If it is, the doc might prescribe a topical medicine. There are other things that you can do to help control it if it is rosacea. Try to refine your diet a bit. Do you eat a lot of red and/or spicy foods like mexican or italian? Red sauces like salsas, enchilada sauces, pasta sauces, anything tomato based, spicy hot foods and even coffee or tea can make rosacea worse. Try taking cooler showers and stay out of saunas and hot tubs. Try to keep your body temperature cool. Chocolate can cause rosacea to flare up. Unfortunately, to control rosacea, if that is what you have, you have to make some lifestyle changes and that includes sort of cutting out or limiting a lot of your favorite foods.

Anyway, go see a doctor first as he or she is the only person who can diagnose you for sure.

Take care!
