Rosacea can look like small pimples or blotches of ruddiness, but it usually appears in small blood vessels all over the face.
The cause remains unknown, but it can be treated.
Some of the ways to treat rosacea are:
- Taking an oral antibiotic in conjunction with a topical treatment.
- Taking a cardiovascular medication for extreme flushing.
- Undergoing laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat broken blood vessels.
Alcohol, certain spices, harsh cleansers, stress and the sun may trigger a flare-up.
Your dermatologist should be able to work with you to help manage the condition.
