Hi!
I've had redness on my cheeks for a long time now. I noticed it when I was pregnant with my first. (Hell be 6 in two weeks) an it hasn't gone away. :/
I also have a two year old now.

Did this happen to anyone else?
I can post a pic if anyone wants to see what I'm talking about.

I hate it! I've tried many different foundations and I can't cover it. It's frustrating

i have redness all over my chin! its flaky and itchy , This is the first time i've ever had this on my face. I am 26 weeks pregnant . it started off in late november and has spread covering mostly all my chin, i can't hide it and its so embarrassing! everyone always stares at me whenever i go out. been to the dermatologist and they diagnosed me with something called perioral dermatitis. ive tried different antibiotics and oinments but still not gone. they tell me i have to wait til baby is born to prescribe stronger meds. hope you can figure out why youre having redness! i know how frustrating it can be especially when you have it on your face for all the world to see! hope it gets better for you!

I get very tiny little bumps once in a while and it'll itch. That's one or two every blue moon. I googled it and others are far worse. Big bumps and lots of it itching. I guess I should feel a little lucky :/

I haven't been to a dermatologist. I may look for one in my area.

My redness started during my first pregnancy and it just hasn't gone away.

I saw a commercial for a cream called Proacea. It is for roacea (sp?) I don't know what I have but I'm thinking of buying some and seeing what happens lol

my face is really dry and my cheeks are red and i get these little bumps kinda too small to be pimples they don't hurt or itch though. I have autoimmune problems and my dr said that could be the problem. I'm thinking of going to see a dermatologist soon.

Is it? I've googles rosacea and those pics are much worse than mine. I don't get those huge bumps.

I'm going to have to go anyway. It sucks

Yep, rosacea.  I have it, inherited it from my mom.  I never even wear blush because...why bother?  I'm already red.

I don't either, I just have looks like my cheeks are red,blotchy looking sometimes worse than other and i have some under my lips near my chin, they are like hot spots.

Dr checked them out said it was rasacea gave me a cream, and I use it to keep flare ups down.

There is no real "cure" just means to stop the inflamation.
