What causes those big, red, flattish spots that don't come to a head?
I never used to get spots but am getting them on my cheeks and chin lately, so just wondering if it's blocked pores due to inadequate cleansing or something else. My skins quite sensitive, not oily, used to be fine. Haven't changed diet or anything.
Dunno but watching with interest as I get them sometimes. They're really sore.
I also have a funny red lump on my face which I've had on and off for over 4 years. It never quite goes away but gets bigger and smaller and feels rough. So if anyone knows what that is as well I'd appreciate it. I often get a really wiry hair growing out of it (nice).
Looked at pics of rosacea, don't think my skins red enough and its def not shiny, tends to be dry if anything. No veins. And the spots are in random places like chin, middle of cheek etc, not concentrated together.
I get these too. Usually hormonal but sometimes due to my diet especially if around chin and mouth. If I eat too much dairy/cream I can practically guarantee getting one. Horrible things aren't they - there's no hiding them
I got these regularly on my chin area - hard, painful and sometimes throbbing. I added Alpha H Liquid Gold to my routine and touchwood haven't had one since. So yes, in my case I think it was a cleansing/blockage situation along with hormones.
