: Dermies are pretty god at telling what causes that problem. Do you by chance take any meds that thin out the skin? Have you talked to the Dermy about stuff you might do to aggravate the condition? If it is rosacea then it is treatable. Might want to invest in a straw hat or at least wear a baseball cap. Give the ointment a chance to work.

I have those red lines too. I got about 3/4 of tem removed at a skin care center. The more or less burn the ends of the leins with a laser type instrument. It is a little painful and causes some minor redness and bruising. For me,it made all the difference in the world. I went to a Circulatory Center. I believe they are all over the country. It is about $200.00 a treatmentI had 3 and could use 2-3 more. Pat
