enlarged blood vessels? broken capillaries?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Ever since last week I began to notice on both sides of my jaw line, spreading into my cheek area, excessive redness. I know it is not acne, in the sense that it is not papule/pustule/whitehead/blackheads. They are like red splotches that are concentrated in those areas of my face.

I have not been doing anything different in terms of my regimen. I have washed my face with the same cleanser I have always used in the past. I have used the same amount of benzoyl peroxide. And I have been taking the same dosage of doxyclycine as well.

Has anyone experienced this in the past? Any recommendations?

The picture is very blurry and does not show the extent of its redness, but hopefully you get the general idea of what I am talking about...

Looks like keratosis pilaris to me, but I could be wrong. You should go to your derm and then should be able to narrow down what it is.
