Questions questions ??!?

Hi, I'm new to the forum and I'm from the UK.

Basically I was told I had Rosacea by the doctor about 2 years ago, I've always had a problem with flushing and blushing since i was at school.

Recently I have noticed that most of my condition has cleared somewhat because I've been washing with oatmeal, my skin seems much smoother but every week without fail I will get a collection of small white heads on my cheeks and under my eyes.

I like to have a drink at the weekends but nothing too heavy and I was wondering is this the cause? How can it be really?

I really do think my Rosacea is secondary to my facial blushing, I always have a red face and neck. Does anyone know or have any ideas how I can start to control this?

To be honest the doctors here in the UK are useless and I just get passed around the houses on different drugs/creams not of which seem to work.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Questions questions ??!?

I was surprised to get learn I have rosacea, I too just had a red face. My dermatologist does a chemical peel ever few months. It helps so much and makes my skin look so much better. I don't drink at all. I do find I can't go in the sun though.
