Hello My name is***** will try my best to help you today.

I am really sorry that you are going through this. It must be really difficult for you.

Have you tried anything for this?

I believe it is acne Rosace:

  • redness across your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin that comes and goes
  • a burning or stinging feeling when using water or skincare products

Other symptoms can include:

  • dry skin
  • swelling, especially around the eyes
  • yellow-orange patches on the skin
  • sore eyelids or crusts around roots of eyelashes
  • thickened skin, mainly on the nose (usually appears after many years)

It's not known what causes rosacea, but some triggers can make symptoms worse. Common triggers for rosacea include:

  • alcohol
  • spicy foods
  • cheese
  • caffeine
  • hot drinks
  • aerobic exercise like running

Antibiotics are really helpful in this regard, secondarily creams like E45 and Dermol 500 is really helpful in this regard.
