so i™ve had acne for pretty much my whole teenage life (i™m 17) and this year it really cleared up from taking antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide but I™ve been stuck pretty much all year with this redness on my face? my dad tells me it™s just acne scars but the redness seems to just get worse as time goes on, looks a lot like acne but my skin is smooth with no bumps, i™m thinking it™s acne rosacea? cant see a derm or doctor anyways bc of covid lol. I'm just not sure if I'm making it worse by starting antibiotics again the past month or so as I feel my skin has got more red. My acne is pretty much gone

Yes, I think it's acne-rosacea. I recommend you to this. : Topical metronidazole , sulfacetamide/sulfur, and azalaic acid are generally effective for patients with mild rosacea. For moderate papulopustular rosacea, combination therapy with oral tetracyclines and topical agents is the first-line choice.
