Red Cheeks
Hey, was wondering if anyone on here has this same problem. Have a redness in my cheeks, but only my cheeks - the skin is smooth and it is not rosacea or KP. There tends to always be a red "hue" but gets quite dark when I get overheated and/or drink alcohol. Was wondering if anyone on here has the same condition and if there is anything to do about it. Thanks!

Re: Red Cheeks
Just a guess, but many people who have high blood pressure have red cheeks. A lot of times the redness becomes more prominent after drinking alcohol.

Go to your doctor as it could be Slapped Cheek Syndrome. No, I'm not joking, that is a real thing, it's a kind of infection.
