Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes redness and swelling on the face and also occasionally the scalp, neck, ears, chest, back and/or eyes. Symptoms range from red pimples, lines and visible blood vessels to dry or burning skin and a tendency to flush easily. You may also have sebaceous hyperplasia (small white or yellow bumps) and/or telangiectasias or redness as part of your rosacea.

The acne component is manageable with creams and/ or oral medications.Sebaceous hyperplasia is often minimized by the topical meds. If not, cosmetic treatments of electrocautery can reduce the size of the glands.Permanent fine red lines are best removed by laser if many or epilation if a few are present. Avoid triggers that cause enlargement of the blood vessels including hot and spicy foods, hot beverages, heat, sun, etc.Rosacea
