Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. It's more common in women and people with lighter skin, but symptoms can be worse in men. Treatment can help with symptoms.

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

The first signs of rosacea include

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

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

As rosacea gets worse, your cheeks, nose, skin and forehead will be red all the time

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

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 – this could be blepharitis
  • thickened skin, mainly on the nose

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

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

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

There are treatments available. Options are usually:

  • prescriptions for creams and gels you put on your skin
  • taking antibiotics for 6 to 16 weeks
  • IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment – this may not be available on the NHS

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

Usually the initial treatment of choice for facial flushing is Topical cream containing Brimonidine

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

It is very effective

You need prescription for it. So please discuss with your doctor/GP about it and get prescription for it.

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

Do you have any further questions???

Expert:  Zee J replied 7 days ago.

I am still here

Please do let me know if you have any further questions I would be happy to answer and discuss

Best of luck
