This answer was rated:

I think I have rosacea. My skin often has red patches especially on my cheeks, my skin tends to be sensitive and often burns especially if I use certain products.I have dry patches that are quite flakey and I get spots.I was hoping you might be able to say whether you think I have rosacea and how to treat it if I do?

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Thanks for your picture

That looks more like seborrheic dermatitis than rosacea

For that you can use over the counter canesten cream applied twice a day for two weeks to clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information
