Redness appearing on cheeks (mild scars)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Quick background on me: I successfully finished a 5 month Accutane treatment about 2 yrs ago. I was left with some mild scars on my cheeks but nothing major. I plan to treat for this once I save up some more money. My problem now though is:

For the past year I'm noticing redness in my cheeks. I wake up in the morning and my face is ok, but as the day goes on it gets redder. By the time evening hits my cheeks are really red and irritated. The redness is only in places where I have scarring, probably the most sensitive areas on my face. I'm not sure what this is, is this Rosacea? Is it something else? What treatments would be best?

I've read some other posts in this section but I'm not sure if they apply to me, as most are a direct result of acne treatments, of which I haven't been using for a while.

The only product I've been using is Cetaphil face wash for oily prone skin.
