    Arrow Do i have rosacea? (pics)

    Ive had redness on my cheeks ever since i was about 11, i didn't really think much of it until a few times when i would be bothered by it's redness . Sometimes its dry but most of the time its smooth.

    Ive went to a dermatologist once for it, he didnt say anything about Rosacea but instead gave me this medication that had sulfur in it and was in liquid form, it didn't do much.

    Here are some pics:








    hope to hear you'r insights, thanks.

    Hi and welcome

    I cant really see much redness, it looks perfectly natural. I wonder if your derm thought it might be KPRF:

    Do you have any other symptoms?

    hey and thanks


    no, not at all. Sometimes when i feel my cheeks it seems a bit dry/rough but nothing serius. It seems that my cheeks are always on a certain level of redness, unless im embaressed or something.

    Thanks. Although most of the time i see the redness on my cheeks and doesn't blend in with my normal skin tone should i check for other symptoms that are common to Rosacea?

    Default hey dude

    Its very hard to see things in 2d(photos)

    Even if ur face is bright red it doesn't always showcase itself in photos,

    Best advice is to go and see a derm,

    Second peice of advice is stop typing on the computer go out side and have some fun

    Go see a derm and try not to worry about it,

    Regards

    mattdogg!!
