red cheeks

All of a sudden from the past 6 months I have been suffering from few skin problems , intially it started with pimples and now pimples have come down , but rather suffering from dryness and redness only on cheeks , some have told me it could be rosacea . I wonder can rosacea happen only to cheeks , I dont have redness on nose , chin and other places . I am unable to understand whether its rosacea or just skin infection . please help me out

From the symptoms the possibility of rosacea needs to be ruled out. Rosacea is a cutaneous disorder primarily of the central part of the face , such as forehead; cheeks ;nose; and chin.
Treatment options vary from antibiotic creams, antihistaminics, sun screens to laser treatment. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best.

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.
