: Hi Rob,
: I have had Rosacea for 18 years. The sun makes it worse. Also certain foods, like, anything hot and spicy, too much citric acids,change of temperatures, like extreme heat and then cold, alcohol, chocolate(Alcohol and chocolate seem to really do a number on me bigtime.) I don't take anything for it now, but was taking something years ago, but it only made my face redder and flakier. There is no cure, it can be controlled.,
I had the same thing. Went to a circulatory center and had treatments where the put a transducer on different areas and zap those red lines out. It feels like someone is burning your nose with a cigarette, and there is some bruising,but 2 treatments took 75% of these nast little veins out of my face.
