rosaceae, photograph required

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query,
You might be suffering from rosaceae.
It is an inflammatory condition of face,
Mainly affecting the face,
The vessels get dilated and hence face become red. In later stages sterile pustules develop on face.
I usually prescribe topical anti inflammatory cream like metrogyl cream and have seen very good result with it. Capsule Doxycycline is also helpful.
However these medications must be taken with a proper prescription.
A photograph woul have helped me in giving a closer diagnosis.
