    Default What skin condition does that look like?

    20150629_155232.jpg20150629_155320.jpg

    Any way to cure this at all???

    Please been suffering from this for about a year and a half. I get called pink/red jokes a lot because my neck is light brown and only nose and cheeks seem to be red/pink? Forehead gets pimples but isnt red so that's not an issue.

    Doctors have given me Lymecycline tablets to take one a day and Differin 0.1% Gel which has done jack tbh.

    I've been doing research and some people said doxycycline may help any other helpful suggestions really wonna cure this asap!

    It looks like rosacea.. See a derm. Doxy may help if that's what it is. In my opinion, it doesn't look bad at all. How's your diet?!

    Please be careful if you decide to take antibiotics. It may help but could also make things worse as they will destroy your gut flora. I would try changing diet first and maybe taking some probiotics. You have caught it early and it looks mild so you may be able to sort it out without resorting to meds. Red meat is likely to cause inflammation so I would suggest foods that are anti-inflammatory. I have cut out sugar, processed food, coffee, alcohol and diary. It has helped a lot!
