Rosacea and Redness

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps. These signs and symptoms may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. There’s no cure, but there are treatments that can help control its symptoms.
