Hi, I am a 20 year old male and I have pretty good skin lately but I've been having this one problem. To start off, my doctor thinks I have Rosacea and I've been applying cream which has been working great. I'm not sure if thats related to this other problem I have which is ... I've been getting these very itchy red patches of skin on my face (only on cheeks but appear anywhere on my cheeks) and these patches are about a nickle in size. Basically I start to feel an itch at any random time then if I look in the mirror, I see the red spot. I only get one at a time almost every day and they generally disapear after about an hour. They sometimes have a white raised center that looks like a mosquito bite which leads me to believe it's a hive and related to histamine. I do have allergies (dust, mold, pollen) but I've never experienced these red, itchy spots until a couple months ago. I tried taking claritan antihistamine and that seemed to keep the spots away but I don't want to have to take that all my life...that doesn't seem right. I have to find the cause.

Does anyone have any advice? I would be very grateful.

Thanks
