Not sure if I have rosacea but need help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have this redness/darkness in my skin that is primarily concentrated on my forehead, area between eyes and the area under my eyes. I'm not sure if it's just mild acne, rosocea or a bad tan but in any case, it results in me looking like a I have pale skin "goggles". (hopefully you can tell in the pic, i'm kind of too shy to post a complete better picture of my face :shifty: )

Now what would be a good solution to this? I'm a guy but I've been seriously thinking about using makeup to reduce the contrast in my skin. Any suggested makeup? Or would I be better following the regimen religiously?

Benzoyl peroxide (Dan's regimen) does not work well for rosacea, as it irritates sensitive skin. BP made my face BRIGHT red. I can't tell if you have rosacea from your picture (too small), nor am I a dermatologist; but if you have general facial redness, but don't have acne--you should see a dermatologist.

Acne makes it harder to diagnose rosacea, as the redness could be from the acne, but if you have flushing redness in your face without acne, it's very likely rosacea.
