Rosacea is a common skin disorder leading to redness (broken blood vessels) and pimples on the nose, forehead, cheekbones and chin. Fair skinned individuals and people who flush easily seem to be more susceptible to this condition. Flushing triggers include hot beverages, spicy foods, alcohol, physical or mental stress, extreme weather, harsh soaps and hot water. Treatment for rosacea include avoiding triggers, gels or creams such as metrogel, clindamycin, Azelex or sulfa. For more severe cases low dose oral antibiotics may be considered. To treat the broke blood vessels a vascular laser may be used, this is a cosmetic treatment that is not covered by insurance.
