Unusual redness in face

Posted by

i haven't been able to find information for the specific symptons i have so here goes: i was on accutane for 5 months which completed 18 months ago. ever since then, when i open my mouth wide for anything from hard laughter to eating, the area around my mouth (pretty big area) gets an unusual red and it's really uncomfortable. not really a blushing type of red but a dark blotchy kind. also, when i eat, especially when I have to open my mouth very wide, my lips get super red and the redness of my lips seems to continue past my lips, so that some dark red blotches in certain areas below my bottom lip appear. also, when this occurs, my face is really uncomfortable and kind of throbbing a little bit. It's not really anything like Rosacea is described, so i don't think it's that, although I do suffer from my Rosacea symptoms like blushing very easily now (never used to) and the redness in my cheeks afterward staying red for a long time. But what is more of a concern for me is this condition after I eat. I mean, i can't even live a normal life because my faces becomes noticably red and blotchy whenever I open my mouth wide, especially after eating. also, many times during the day my face hotter in temp than anywhere else. i can put my hand on my neck and then my face and feel a noticable difference. i'm almost positive it's not just Rosacea b/c i've read a lot about it, but what I'm suffering from isn't a Rosacea-specific symptom. please, can anyone help?????
