An unfortunate common complaint by those with skin conditions is that others may stare or make an ignorant or rude comment.

Have you ever experienced stares or received negative comments from others? How did/do you handle these type of encounters? Do you have any recommendations or advice for others?

Do you suffer from stares and remarks of others?

I have rosacea, so I get extreme redness on face, such as my cheeks, nose, and forehead. On sunny days, this can get worse! 

I often get stares, but not often have I ever received negative comments besides from a few individuals that I was told said something... but not to me. The only recommendation I can offer is to be content with yourself and your body and know that you are special and important because we are all unique!
