Face gets red splotches around eyes and nose even with sensitive washes, areas feel warm, inflamed, have acne. Is it due to birth control?

When I wash my face, even with sensitive washes, my skin gets reddish in splotches especially around right eye and nose . It s a bit painful and it feels usually a little warm and inflamed. I have been also break out with acne more than usual. I had one particularly bad breakout (worst in my whole life even though I m 22 now) and after that it hasn t yet gone back to normal even though it chilled out a little. Why is my skin so reactive?.. Could it be my birthcontrol?

I would be pleased to answer your question .

yes there is a possibility that the birth control contributing to redness and acne break out .

I could also be due to a condition called Rosacea which results in the redness and acne breakout .

It can start at your age group and it would need a good management by visiting the Dermatologist .

Thanks and Take care
