Question Red line on face


I noticed over XMas that there was a large red line appearing down the side of my right cheek. I am unsure what caused it or how to get rid. I read that these kinds of marks are caused by blood vessels and can be caused by overuse of topical steroids- I used hydrocortisone cream on the side of my face for about 2/3 weeks over the summer, but can it really have had any effect over 6 months on?? I am really confused- thanks for any help given.

Re: Red line on face

I know you posted quite some time ago so you probably don't check this... Anyways, it sounds like you and I have something in common. I've had a red line that runs from my temple down my cheek and 'pools' at my jaw bone, on the right side of my face. I think it showed up all the way back in OCT. 2002 and I still haven't a clue of what it is. I have chronic digestive problems, and i've wondered if these are related ailments, also lots of stress which I also ponder being a potential cause. I have been to dermatologists and acupuncturists alike with no diagnosis or helpful treatment. The 'line' is red and is not painful although if touched it becomes more inflamed such as after shaving and sometimes there is a slight burning sensation. No anti-fungal cream has helped me. Has anything helped you?
