I've had ongoing problems that may be rosacea, starting in my eyes, more recently facial flushing/burning. A couple of weeks ago this suddenly got a lot worse, my cheeks and chin have become very red/inflamed and started to swell up alarmingly; the skin pores are really prominent and oil is literally gushing from them. Historically, my skin may have been a little shiny on chin/nasal folds but I've never had anything like this before. The only change I can connect it too is starting to take flaxseed oil supplements. Has anyone else ever found that flax or omega 3 supplements ever trigger this sort of sebaceous over-reaction? There aren't any papules/pustules, just swollen, reddened skin and gushing, shiny oil film over nose, cheeks, brow and chin with a few 'islands' of dry, flaking skin.
