Red/flushed on one cheek, cool in the other?
Anyone else experience this? In my years of having this condition, only now has my rosacea done this! My right cheek will be red/hot and my left cool. Or I will have a flush, but my right cheek will be much much redder/hotter. I can't explain it - i started a new cream but the first time this happened was BEFORE the new cream (i tend to test out creams on my right cheek - it breaks out less so i can tell the difference if the cream is making my rosacea worse).
I'm so worried that this will be my "new rosacea" - and that i'm stuck with it. I'm so frustrated and upset. I don't want this to be like this. Especially if one cheek is cool from being nice and cool inside yet the other is redder/hot! WTF!

I teach yoga. It is known through the eastern philosophy that the right side is hotter than the left.
Poetically referred to as the Sun side, the Left being the moon side.

Yes, I experience this. Sometimes I'm flushed only on the left, sometimes only on the right. Which is more likely to be affected varies over time. I think it's fairly common for flushing to be unilateral or asymmetric. I don't know what causes it.

What's weird is 5 years that I've been flushing and not until 2 weeks ago this started happening. Also for the past week it's been every day flushed more on the right side... Makes me worry that this is it, im stuck

the doc said its usually the side of where the sun hits your face the most, if you drive its the left side if your a passenger its the right side......

Yes for me sometimes it's the side that's more exposed to light or heat. Other times there's no apparent explanation.
