Rosacea is a common condition characterized by excess redness of the face which ultimately produces obvious “broken capillaries” and may be associated with acne-type bumps.Common risk factors include chronic sun exposure and Northern European heritage. Alcohol, spicy foods, emotional stress and caffeine may make the condition more apparent but do not cause rosacea. This condition is readily treated with an individualized approach, combining sunscreens, topical creams, laser and, if necessary, prescription antibiotic pills.
