For the past couple of days within the last week, I have noticed that my cheeks are a rosy pink color! No where else on my face, but just my cheeks. There is no pain, or itching involved. My diet has been the same as well. I am just wondering if anyone else has this happen to them from time to time. The weired thing is, I haven't been using anything different, like facial cleansers, or different make-up. Everything has been the same. Also, I haven't been out in the sun for extended times, and I don't tan. I don't know, I just think this is kind of weired since this hasn't happened to me before. I also have clear skin, and have never had any type of problems with my skin any where else on my body.

Has anyone else had this, and what is it?

Thanks in advance!

It could be roscesa (*sp*) that is when the skin develops almost a type of rash. Get it checked by a derm or a doctor.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This presentation is consistent with rosacea.
Use topical antibiotic like clindamycin and look for the response.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
