Adult, Female, Cheek / Beard Area (Edit search)
In the adult, there are a variety of conditions that can affect the cheek area. Most women are not affected by several of the conditions associated with facial hair that that many men experience in this same area. However, there are some conditions common to the cheek that are particular to women. Melasma is a darkening of the skin on the face, such as on the cheek. It is often seen in women who are pregnant and thought to be due to higher female hormone levels. Lupus will typically cause a rash that covers the cheek and the bridge of the nose. This condition is also more often seen in women than men. Spider angiomas are spindle-like blood vessels that can also affect pregnant women but can be seen coupled with other conditions. Sun damage is very common on the cheek, and skin cancers can form in this area. Click the links below for more information.
