What causes red/pink colored face?

My face is always a pink/ reddish color. People get the wrong idea and often think I am blushing, hot, or simply nervous from the pigment of my face. The rest of my body is an ordinary white color. I know that it isn t rozaycha. Any ideas what the cause of my red skin may be?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,

Yes, it could be rosacea which is characterized by easy flushing / blushing and red skin. I suggest you to use a sunscreen and avoid triggers that exacerbate rosacea like sun, high temperature, extreme cold, harsh products and cosmetics on face.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Kakkar S., Dermatologist
