High Cheek Colour

Hi,

I'm 19 and have quite i high colour in my cheeks and my complexion is not great. I went to my doctor and he quickly said it was a form of acne and gave me some mild antibiotics (minocin) and elidel cream which i was allergic to. i dont want to go back there because i feel as though he just brushes it off as nothing, wheras its a massive deal to me! And i'm too scared to take the antibiotics again because i'm worried about an adverse effect. I cover it up with foundation but find that throughout the day my skin goes dry and looks flaky... I also get this when i try to put foundation on after a shower. I just wondered if anyone had any advice on what to use to stop it looking so red. Its really beginning to get me down as i'm going on holiday in few weeks and it would be great to have one less thing to worry about. I'm really not sure if it's acne, or whether it is just a skin problem, just a high colour that i can't do anything about?
Please Help!!
