There are many skin conditions that can give the face a red appearance. Some are itchy, some are sore and some have no symptoms at all.
Establishing the correct diagnosis is the key to successful management.
These are some of the common causes of facial redness:
- Atopic Eczema
- Contact allergic dermatitis
- Seborrohoeic dermatitis
- Prominent blood vessels- Telangiectasia
Treatments depend on the diagnosis and it may be creams, oral medication, Allergy (patch) testing, Laser or a combination of the above.
Why is it important you see a Dermatologist?
Getting the right diagnosis is very important and Dermatologists are the top skin specialist doctors to advise on diagnosis and best treatment options.
We often see patients that have been receiving treatments on the high street that at best have been ineffective or at worst have caused harm. Its your skin, your face, don’t just trust it with anyone without medical background.
If you have a ‘red face’ and are not sure why, don’t just cover it up with layers of make up or avoid socialising: come and see one of our Consultants to help you.
