I filled in the form with my own details, but the question is about my husband, who is 48 and male.
He started getting rosacea a few months ago, and it's getting worse.
I believe he has tried antibiotics, but I am not entirely sure.

HelloHe should see a dermatologist, first and foremost.If his GP will not refer him, then I suggest he ask for metrogel, which is a cream that is very effective in many cases.
