Rosacea, red blemishes

I have a lot of red blemishes left over from acne. And from time to time I still get pimples. But there's red spots and flush marks in places where no pimples have formed in years. I don't know if it's rosacea or just left over blemishes. But it affects my face pretty bad. Any ways to get rid of this?

If it is rosacea, there is no cure. However, there are ways to help control. Do not drink alcohol. See a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Re: Rosacea, red blemishes

But the blemishes come from the pimples. That's why I don't think it's rosacea. And I've seen pictures of people with rosacea and it isn't quite what I have. It's just blemishes.

Re: Rosacea, red blemishes

Rick, it would be a good idea to see a dermatologist and get proper diagnosis. There are other things that could be the problem. I was in my 30's when Rosacea started and it has continued for many, many years. My face will sting/itch at times as well as have a flat mealy rash on parts of it, especially the forehead and cheeks. Occassionaly there will be a hard red cyst that never comes to a head and is very painful. Over the years bloodvessels in face have become very noticeable especially if I am in a warm room. One thing for sure I do not dare use makeup, face reacts and I end up bright red. Hubby has finally quit asking me if I am o.k. when my face turns red for no reason.

You could just still have old fashion acne.
