I have been troubled with my skin for the last 4 years, it all started when I began using the Clinique 3 step system, after about 1 week my cheeks were red raw and itchy so I stopped using but my face has never been the same since. Basically i've got little pimples around my temples/ eyebrows and my cheeks which are red and ittirated and sometimes slightly stingy/itchy, they can get better and calm down but they always come back in the same location and never totally go away. In the past 4 years I have tried a few antibiotics which havent completely taken it away, doctor's have told me it's acne but i have never been so sure as you cant 'pop' them and they dont look like they are filled with anything. After a particularly bad outbreak 2 weeks ago I started looking online again as I really want to get to the bottom of it and I came across acne rosacea and it seems the only thing that sounds like what I have (although more of a mild case) and I just wondered if anyone else thinks this might be the case? I don't really get bad flushing though, probably very slightly although my face does feel hot sometimes and my nose gets red alot which is annoying! I am at the end of my tether with this so if anyone could be of any help it would be much appreciated. I am back at the doctors this week to hopefully get referred to a dermatologist.
