I am a 24 yo male and I have always had gentle red tint on the cheeks of my face. Early this year I was diagnosed with rosacea by a local (KY) dermatologist. I assumed that I had rosacea, and I began to research the condition to great depths. I discovered that rosacea is a commonly misdiagnosed condition assigned to individuals who possess facial redness. In fact, the more I researched the condition I discovered that facial redness is the only symptom that I have in common with sufferers of rosacea. Over the last two years my skin has became increasingly sensitive to many of the products that I have traditionally used throughout the past (I.e. Nivea men’s shaving balm, Neutrogena Face wash, and the list goes on). Nevertheless, I discontinued these products and worked towards “sensitive skin friendly” products such as cetaphil, cerave, and Eucerin redness relief, etc. I am leaning towards the fact that I may have KPRF instead of rosacea, but I am not for sure as I am not a trained professional. I would love to visit another derm, but I am a broke “college kid” without insurance at the moment. I can include pictures if needed, and I am sure that would be required for any diagnosis via the internet. I have always been a capable, confident male, but the facial redness has caused me to fall in to a trap of self conscious thought where I am obsessed with checking the tint of my cheeks throughout the day (it is very common for my cheeks to redden, and lighten throughout the day). This is my first post, please help me!
