    Default Do I have rosacea or not?

    So Iím only 17, and have had redness on my cheeks for a couple years now but it only started getting noticeable recently. Long story short I went to two different doctors one being a dermatologist who told me I had rosacea and told me to use mirvaso. After about 3 days of using it I noticed harsh rebound and flushing exactly in the areas i applied it to do immediately stopped. I asked the doctor if what I have is rosacea or Keratosis pilaris ruba faceii (KPRF) and he didnít really give a clear answer. I believe what I have is not rosacea as the redness only appears on the cheeks and there are no blood vessels visible or pimples of that sort. Also wouldnít it be very unlikely for a person my age at 17 to have had rosacea since I was around 13 which wouldnít make sense. Iím still suffering rebound flushing from the mirvaso at night even though itís been about 2 months since I used the gel and i a Experience flushing in the places I applied it. As of now Iím unsure what to do in terms of relieving the mirvaso rebound flushing and the cause of my general redness whether it be KPRF or rosacea so would like some help.

    Looks like KPRF to me.

    Treat it with Soolantra and see what happens. Might be demodex

    To be honest, after trying mirvaso and seeing what itís done to my skin, I really donít want to try any of these other gels which cause rebound flushing as itís not a long term fix.
