Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but yes burning , itching and stinging are common secondary symptoms of roseaca.. It can also lead to face redness and flushing with sensitive, dry , coarse or thick skin.. acne-like breakouts and dry irritated eyes are also common.. i hope you find this helpful..

I have a red rash on my chest just below my neck. It is bright red, kind of like when I use to take Niaspan and would have some red flushing. It started about three weeks ago. They changed my cholesterol a few months ago to Zocor. Could I be having a reaction to the meds. I had been taking Vytorin so I don t think it s the Zocor but I don t know.

Hi. I seem to run a steady low-grade fever and I often have a great deal of face flushing. It creates redness and actual heat coming off my face. I stay tired and when this happens regularly, i often develop a few small sores on my back. My dad called it jungle rot when he got them. He was in vietnam and korea.
