Thank you for your response.
You are most likely having a condition called as Rosacea.
The first line treatment of this condition is a topical antibiotic like clindamycin cream or metronidazole cream along with using sunscreens everyday (SPF 50+). Make sure that you use sunscreen specific for your oily skin type.

You should use the duac for at least three to four weeks to see some improvement.
Improvement is a gradual process and will take sometime.
Here is a link that gives you various brand names of noncomedogenic or nongreasy sunscreens that you can use:
No it is just just redness of the face.
Have you been to a skin doctor for this?
Have you received any official diagnosis?
Sorry, yes it is not just redness of the face. Sorry for the typo.
I think that the noncomedogenic sunscreen would help.
I would recommend trying metronidazole cream of the duac has not helped any like you mentioned.
Yes exactly exposure to cold to the warm and change in the color of your face does go in favor of rosacea which is what I think you have.
Oily skin is very typical of rosacea.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Yes, initially the cream does actually make it a little worse before making it better.
So I would recommend continuing on that.
You can, in the meantime, continue using the natural pH cleanser as well if you desire.
