Rosacea?

Hello, in the last couple of weeks I've noticed that I've got this constant flushed complexion on my nose,cheeks and forehead and ears - as if I'm sunburnt.
The forehead flushing is occasionally itchy - I do blush quite easily as I'm pale skinned, but this complexion is constant, no matter what my emotions are.
I have checked stuff out on the internet, and I'm worried this is the early signs of Rosacea.
Thanks in advance for the replies.

Re: Rosacea?

To get a diagnosis, you'd have to go see a doc. Not every person with red face has rosacea. Doc can recommend some things to help you feel better, if it is rosacea. Otherwise.. you may be one of those people who blush easily, like I am.

Re: Rosacea?

This is how I am too. I know I don't have rosacea, but it looks like I have a mild sunburn over my nose and cheeks. I have been to the derm many times for pimple meds and he has never said anything to me about it, so I am assuming it is nothing. I think it's because I have sensitive skin and it gets irritated very easily.

Re: Rosacea?

For years (possibly 10 years) I have had that wonderful flush in the same places. I've known that I turn red unusually easily during, for instance, embarrassing conversations. At times, my nose is also a little shiny and swollen (probably noticable to only me). Off and on, I noticed a very small amount of peeling or flaking skin around the nose. THEN, as if that wasn't enough, I recently and suddenly began breaking out in the same facial regions. The lesions do not look like acne. They are tiny, have no blackheads or whiteheads, and look like a bad rash. And now, the newest thing is that I break out horribly and the red face greatly intensifies within five minutes of drinking alcohol. I don't get it. The only thing that keeps the redness/breakout under control is Elidel cream. I am not saying that you have rosacea, but a dermatologist could probably tell you definitively. It could simply be dermatitis, caused by many things. Keep in mind that dermatitis can co-exist with rosacea.
