I am a 53 year old male who has had red blotches appear on my face about 7 months ago. They are not painful. Very small flakes of dry skin appear mainly on my cheeks and side burn area. On both sides of my face I have this reddish look with very small bumps. About to make an appointment with a dermatologist as had enough. Can settle down on some days but still have a slight tinge of redness.
