Skin redness that is not associated with rosacea may occur for many reasons. From sunburn to an allergic reaction, there are many things that can cause your skin to become red or irritated. It may be because extra blood rushes to the skin’s surface to fight off irritants and encourage healing.
Typically when there is disruption to the skin, the blood will rush to the surface of the skin to help fight the source of the disturbance. This reaction will cause the skin to appear reddened, which is particularly apparent in those with paler skin tones.
