Dear Debby
There is not much one can do except laser treatment
John L. Bezzant, M.D have written an article on rosacea causing this - Is there a medical University of Utah? He seems to be a dermatologist? They treat this with an antibiotic.
I'm in South Africa so I don't know your medical institutions at all.
