What should I do about extremely red cheeks? (photo)
Doctor Answers (2)
Your face/cheeks may be a condition called Keratosis Pilaris. Sometimes evidence of this condition is seen on shoulders, upper arms, and thighs. Look for hydrating moisturizers that contain long-chain fatty acids and 18-B Glycyrrhetinic Acid to restore the balance in the skin and decrease inflammation.
Good luck, take care.
Long standing redness
I do not believe any topical therapies will be effective for this indication. I would recommend treatment with the V-beam laser to address the vascular nature of this condition.
