    Red face and TRT

    I have been on TRT for quite some time, and developed a constant red face. If I go out in the sun, or use a tanning bed. It just makes it worse I don't tan anymore it just gets more red like a sunburn. But doesn't hurt. LOL.The only other medication I'm on is Nexium. Does anybody else have this problem?

    Could it be Rosacea? I'd make an appt with a skin doctor and investigate it. Other than that the only thing that comes to mind is an allergy of some sort.

    ps: when I use a tanning bed I throw a towel over my face. Consider that your face is exposed to the sun all the time and not hidden by clothes. No need to blast it when in a tanning bed, imho.

    I don't seem to have the other symptoms of rosacea, but yes I'm going to have to see a dermatologist I guess. I do throw a towel over my face in the tanning bed now, it's just irritating even going out the sun on vacation and all you do is turn red. LOL. TY

    I'm betting on rosacea or a mild form of it. Let us know!

    Are you testing your hematocrit and hemoglobin? High H&H can cause redness in the face.
