Rosacea is a common skin disease that may cause redness and swelling on the face as well as a bumpy rash on the face, chest and back. Rosacea is not dangerous but can worsen without treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment is key to managing this disease.
Certain foods and drinks that make the face flush can cause a Rosacea flare. Treatment for Rosacea can involve various topical treatments, retinoids, oral antibiotics or laser treatments. Every treatment is customized to each individual case and severity.
