Small, red, bumpy, non-itchy rash on right cheek

Hi, everyone! :)

So I'm really hoping someone can help me with this! I developed this rash a few weeks ago. I'm 21, never had it before, it's not too big, doesn't itch, a bit dry/flaky, bumpy, and red. It's only on my right cheek, the rest of my face is clear. Before it showed up, I had not put anything on my face that I don't usually put. It may still be some sort of allergic reaction though or maybe stress? I don't know. I've only applied a moisturizing cream but it didn't help. I'll attach a picture soon!

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you! :D

One possibility for such kind of a rash can be rosacea. Rosacea is a cutaneous disorder primarily of the central part of the face , such as forehead; cheeks ;nose; and chin. Pimples or acne are sometimes included as part of the definition.
The other possibility is of contact dermatitis or eczema skin. Treatment is diagnosis specific, so please consult a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
