HI, I just returned from the dermatologist....I inquired as to why my left cheek is red so often..he stated that I have "Facial Rosacea" and gave me a gel to put on every night. Anyone out there with this that share/educate me on t his Rosacea? Thanks

Not that I'm a doctor, but I've been telling my mom she has it for like 2 years. She hasn't asked her doctor, but I know it bothers her. I know she's had it for a long time, 10 years or so, but she just complains about it. I saw a commercial on tv and told her about it, she still didn't go to the doctor. The person fit to educate you on this, is the one who gave you the gel. Make an appointment and have a sit-down with your doctor. He will give you as much information as you need.

I agree with you. I have been reading on the internet and had no idea it is so serious and I'm feeling really depressed about all. Yes, get your MOm to the doctor!! It is a serious disease.

My step mother in law has rosacea. She said she cant wear makeup on her face other then her eyes etc. because it just flakes off because of the rosacea. My mother just told me that my father has been diagnosed with rosacea. I hope that I do inherit that when I am his age. Seems like everything my parents have I have. I thought when you have kids its supposed to break up the things a little but instead I get everything each of them has.. I'm allergic to the cold and get hives from it like my father. I have acne like my mother.
