Red Rash on Cheeks

I am a 26yr old female, I have recently noticed red areas on my my outer cheeks close to my ears. The rashes are similar on each side, but I also have pink/red areas under my eyes and on my cheekbones. I do not know how long this has been here, I really noticed it about 3 months ago. I have many other symptoms going on (dizziness feelings, occasional shaky hands, cold tingly feet, hands tingle after typing or doing activity, sinus head stuffiness without drainage). I have been on the Nuvaring (vaginal contraceptive ring) for about 5 months now and it has really affected my pms time by causing back pain and mood swings. I have looked up rosacea and lupus, but can not determine what this is on my face. I have pictures but dont know how to upload them on here. I really need some help. I used to lay in the tanning beds but I burn easily so I stopped. The redness seems to slowly be spreading across my face and I need to figure out what this is.
