Hi, my skin gets very red and inflamed in the warmth, generally the evenings, and I was wondering what I could do to stop this

Hello. I'm The Good Dr., licensed and practicing physician. Excellent service is my goal.

I'm very sorry about this.

How old are you?
do you take any meds?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I’m 16 years old and not on any medication. I’ve been trying skincare for the past year and have had these issues with redness particularly in the past few months

It sounds like rosacea

have you seen a dermatologist?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
No I haven’t had the chance to see one in person due to restrictions but I’ve been suggested that it could be acne scarring although I’ve never really had severe acne. I can send you a picture if you’d like?

Ok
