This area on my cheek (picture) has now become red and has been so back and forth for the past 2-3 years. It is no acne but I am afraid if it will make my scars deeper.

Right now I use a Paulas Choice CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser ( http://www.paulaschoice.com/shop/skin-care-categories/cleansers/_/CLEAR-Pore-Normalizing-Cleanser/ ) + Banana Boat Aloe Vera After sun or Aminoderm with amino acid complex to moisturize.

What can I do for it to stabilize and get rid of the redness?

Thanks.

Personally, I have really fair sensitive skin, and "redness" shows up really easily, especially around my mouth. Try using a chemical exfoliant! A physical exfoliant (like a scrub) will only cause more irritation and redness. Use a gylcolic acid, I use Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid toner on a cotton pad. It helps with hyper pigmentation and redness. Also, you might have sensitive roseca prone skin, try using calming products for roseca, and drink lots of water!

Hi again. Have you heard of Perioral Dermatitis (POD skin condition)? I don't know much about it, but I know someone who has it. From what I know, its a condition that causes redness/blotchiness on the skin. The reasons are unknown. But try researching it, and if it sounds like what you are experiencing, talk to a dermatologist.
