I apologize for my bad English in advance; it is not my native tongue.
I am having “flashes” on the cheeks for the last 2 years. The “flashes” happen when I am in a hot room, or when I am outside and its very very hot ( above 35C ).
After visiting 2 dermatologists that didn’t offer much help I found a good derm’.
He asked me if I also have pimples on the cheeks( where the redness is ) and I said no.
The derm’ said that its 1 of a 3 options:
1. A genetic issue
2. An internal problem
3. Acne rosacea
He said that if I had pimples it probably would be rosacea. So he ranked the rosacea as the last option of the 3. He prescribed me some topical treatment and I need to come back to him in 2 months.
The thing is that before visiting him I never saw any pimples and now I think I see some realy realy small “bumps” ( they realy realy small ) they so small that I can’t fill them with my finger ( the skin is smooth ) I see them only if I come very close to the mirror ( 5 cm close )
Is this rosacea pimples? Or is rosacea pimples is something that is plain to see ?
Sorry again for my bad English. In my country there is no rosacea forum and there is very little information about it here.
