Question Rust paint to protect from rusting?

Every 4 months I am removing the rust from my patio cement. Is it any rust paint to protect from rusting again? Thanks

Cement does not rust, but steel/iron does. Do you know where the staining is coming from? Is there something overhead that is rusting and dripping onto the patio? Do you anything rusty sitting on or near the patio where rainwater could wash the rust onto your concrete? Is the concrete chipped and you see steel in the hole embedded in the concrete?

Two trees are overhead under my patio. Is it any paint to protect from rusting on my cement?

Trees don't rust either but might cause some staining that looks similar to rust. Paint might make the rust colored stain removal easier but exposed concrete slabs don't always hold paint well. What are you doing/using to remove the stains?

You must ID the source of the stain/rust...or you will just be chasing your tail and wasting time and money.

The info so far is equivalent to "car won't do I change the tire".
