Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hi, Dr. Stan here to help you today. Several questions:
Are you male or female?
How old are you?
Rosacea, when not flaring, has reduced red areas. There is no current cure, but there is control. Rosacea can cause severe redness and pimples on the nose, cheeks forehead and chin. If the onset was after puberty, starting in your 20's, it is most likely Rosacea and not simple acne. Common triggers for Rosacea include sun exposure, very hot or very cold weather, alcohol, very hot foods, spicy foods, intense exercise and stress. Your Dermatologist can offer treatment to minimize flare-ups.

Hi, How are you feeling? Any additional questions regarding Rosacea?
Yes, this may be part of Rosaceae. Without treatment, there can be flare-ups more frequently. These same areas may again get inflamed and turn bright red and scaly.
Have you scheduled an appointment with a Dermatologist?
May be two different problems, but Rosacea may be associated with whiteheads. Have you rated my responses? If not please leave a positive rating. Thank you.
