Thanks for the query,

rosaceae is an inflammatory condition of face,

Mainly affecting the face,

The vessels get dilated and hence face become red.

She need treatment with topical anti inflammatory like metrogyl cream to be applied daily in night

Doxycycline is also helpful.

A photograph would have helped me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
