16 year old kid, about 3 years ago he was given some prescribed acne meds by his doctor. Now, he has very red cheeks, it looks like he's constantly blushing, and generally red skin on his chin and between his eyebrows. Along with that, he tends to get pimples (some blackheads, some inflamed whiteheads) on his chin, in the same general area as the redness on his chin. The acne meds don't seem to be helping too much, it's just a twice daily face wash and clindamycin phosphate topical lotion. Haven't been to the doctor's recently, not sure if I even want to take him with all that's going on. He's never had acne on his cheeks where that red is, yet nothing seems to help. Wondering whether anyone might have any ideas as to if the acne meds could be worsening the redness if it is rosacea, or if something stronger is needed if it's acne. Thanks for any help!
