Face Rash

Hi all
Wondering if anyone else experiences a large amount of facial breakouts that come and go?
I also have slight skin redness which I've had for 4-5 years and assumed it's roseasia (sp?)
But am not wondering if it's something else as it gets worse and better back and forth..

What medicines are you on? a side effect? My husband gets redness eczema on his face when he is flaring or meds aren't quite keeping it all under control. My son gets it on his scalp and the inside of his elbows

I'm not currently on any medications to control it as I haven't been diagnosed yet but have this rash and was unsure

Funny you should ask that question, I was wondering the same when a rash suddenly broke out over my cheek this weekend

I'm not sure if I have a rash exactly but a couple weeks ago my chin and cheeks started getting red with some bumps, sometimes itchy and it's been going away then coming back. If I find out what it is, I'll let you know.
Diagnosis: Crohn's in 1991 at age 9
Surgeries: 1 Small Bowel Resection in 1999; Central IV in 1991-92
Meds for CD: 6MP 75mg
Things I take: Tenormin 25mg (PVCs and Tachycardia), Junel (endometriosis), Tylenol 3 (Osteoarthritis), Zantac 150mg 2/day (acid reflux), Klonopin 1mg (Panic Disorder), Imitrex 25mg (migraines), Zofran 8mg (nausea)
Currently in: REMISSION Thought it was a flare but it's just scar tissue from my resection. Dealing with a stricture. Remission from my resection, 19 years and counting.
