face and lips get red reall easily

I'm usually a pretty fair skinned person, at least on my face. But all I need to do is accidentally touch it, or be really warm and my face, around my cheeks and cheekbones especially gets red. My lips also, they are darker than normal people's lips, reddish, sometimes it looks like I'm wearing lipstick. What's the problem?

Re: face and lips get red reall easily

Hey there.. It sounds like you have rosacia.. A lot of people with very fair skin get it as well, although it is more common in women than men, but men can still get it too.. You should read up on it on the internet and get a book or so... It's something that really should be treated sooner than later, because it does get worse over time if not treated. Make an appointment with a dermatologist.

Good luck!!!
