Facial redness - not rosacea

I'm looking for any advice about a pinkish/reddish rash that I've had on my face for the past year, ever since I took a trip to Hungary. It appears on both cheeks. I've been told by two doctors that it's rosacea; two others said it's not. One told me it was parasites causing it, but after I took meds it was still there. I can't seem to get rid of this, and the last thing I want to do is go to another dermatologist who doesn't know anything. Help!

Re: Facial redness - not rosacea

hi Riva, nice name

I think u have developed rosacea, as my cousin has the same symtoms as u. i have rosacea too but its mild and i dont have permanent red flushes on my cheeks although i do get them every now and then. Do u have dry skin Riva? people with dry skin tend to get rosacea. Unfortunately there is no cure but there r lots of antibiotics to control it and take the rednesss away.
