Hello! I have been struggling with my face for several years now. It's very sensitive and very dry. Even when I wash my face, my face becomes redder. I have tried to go to many cosmetologists, but it worked only for some time and stopped. I have a bunch of pimples on my face, dry patches and irritated- red skin. I also have some troubles with my regular-pooping (sorry, forgot another word for it!).

Sometimes, I would not be able to poop for days , even though my diet is very normal and the same as others and I do not eat anything extra or too little. Also, I can not put any acids on my face, as it will cause a lot of irritation. I have a cyst from about a year ago (I went to the doctor and cosmetologist, but it didn't work or remove it), so it kind of "spread"on my face and now much flatter and invisible. Should I be concerned? I really want to clear out my skin, but do not know how to! That is my main problem. Please, help.



It actually sounds as if you may have rosacea which is a vascular skin condition which causes persistent redness to the face and occasional breaking out and it may also have effects on another part of your body. You really should see a local dermatologist and have him or her look at your skin very carefully and determine what the best course of treatment is for you as there are several that are very effective.
