So you asking why are my cheeks red? See, your cheeks could be red because of a skin problem. This is actually a pretty common skin disorder, called rosacea, that if left untreated can be potentially disfiguring. It’s not infectious in any way, often only appearing when you are at least 30 and is hereditary. The symptoms? Blushing or flushing easily. They are the kind of skin problem that develops gradually, so more often than not, people overlooked it as just skin sensitivity or mistaken as acne attacks.
At the start, redness should be apparent on the nose, chin, forehead or the cheeks. Gradually, the colour will last longer and deepens, often occurring more frequently. Visible blood vessels should appear on the skin eventually. Pimples and bumps will develop if not treated. The eyes could be affected too, causing them to be bloodshot, irritated and watery.
Currently, there is no cure for rosacea. Treatment on the early stages, however, is really effective. Call up your dermatologist to consult on this problem. In general, you should receive some antibiotics as the first line of medication, followed by metronidazole cream or gel to be applied directly on the skin.
