I have a rash that has broken out on my face. I have not changed my diet or any habits but have been under a lot of stress. Can you tell me what this could be and what if any treatment is needed?

Haven't noticed if it increases after sun exposure. No other rashes but have been under a lot of stress lately. Not much sun this time of year where I live.

I do drink wine but have not had any reaction over the years.
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.
Thank you very much for your reply. This is not any reaction or sensitivity. This is stress induced rosacea. This condition is not usually associated with itching.It is a benign condition and will not spread all over the body. The redness can increase with alcohol intake, heavy exercise and using toners on the skin. You can treat it with over the counter Cetaphil cleansing lotion and use of Aveeno skin relief lotion once at night daily for 3 weeks. Do not use any harsh face washes or creams on the face. Do not use bleach on the face. Please do let me know if you have any further queries.
