Rosacea is an inflammatory condition. The cause is not known. There are three types- redness and enlargement of tiny blood vessels, addition of inflammatory lesions=pimples, and enlargement of the nose. Avoid anything that causes flushing ie alcohol, spicy food, hot drinks, extreme heat. When there are pimples one can use Skinoren cream. Tetracycline=antibiotic for a long period is the treatment of choice. Avoid the use of cortisone on the face. I assume that are are 100% certain about the diagnosis. There are a number of conditions my mimic rosacea. Make sure!!
