For the past few years, I have had red, blotchy cheeks. It's not rosacea. I have tried several different rosacea treatments that haven't helped at all. I am in my teens. I try to wear foundation whenever I can, but I would like a more permanent treatment so that I don't have to deal with this problem on a day-to-day basis. It's painful knowing that everyone else has such beautiful smooth skin while I have to try to hide mine every day. I'm not lucky to have "natural blush," because it's just a blotchy mess that runs down my cheeks. Some days it is worse than others. A few triggers seem to be when I wash my face (even if I use cool water, mild soap and DON'T even touch my cheeks), when my cheeks are touched/rubbed, when I am anxious, or when I am embarrassed. Once it starts, it lasts all day.
