I need some guidance n help here. I am 31 yr old male. For he last 3 yrs I have a swelling on my both upper cheekbones. The covering skin is always red. The redness increases when I wash my face or when I go out in the sun. Excessive temperature changes also increase the redness together with a burning sensation in my eyes. This also happens when I am in a stuffy room with all windows closed. The skin on my cheekbone turns red as well as my forehead and sometime ears. When this happens I also feel little hotness in my head together with breathlessness. I have tried to descibe the symptoms here. I would appreciate any help.
I think I have a dry skin. Could this be Rosacea? I doubt as I am not white skinned!
My BP is140/100 and we have a history of heart disease running in my mothers side. My height is 5 feet 9 and my weight is 85 kgs. My liver, kidney and cholesterol tests are show that everything is normal there.
