this has been ongoing for many years. I have redness and scalely skin on the my cheeks (next to nose, more one side than the other), my chin, and some of my forehead. Seems to be more oily than dry but is confusing. Dry skin flaking off or excessive skin production and oil??? Seems to come and go... Any ideas.
It would really be a good idea to have this evaluated. You may have a condition known as rosacea, that presents much as you are describing. The condition typically worsens with age and without treatment. A diagnosis would both put your mind at ease and get you started on appropriate therapy.
For my Masters' thesis I am looking for (English) people who have Rosacea or who have a family member with Rosacea.
I have developed a survey about Rosacea and your input will provide me of important information that will reinforce the outcome of my thesis. The survey is anonymous. It will take around 7 minutes to complete.
Title: "Market research on Rosacea in the UK"
I would deeply appreciate your help in filling out this survey. Click on the link below to fill in the survey:
