Thanks for sharing

It seems more like a rash of Rosacea

You need to use Metronidazole

This will help in settling the problem

Also you should use a sunscreen

If no improvement then you should go for a Laser therapy

A dermatologist will help in this situation

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards
