Can dettol cause rosacea?

I have rosacea. I have had IPL laser treatment which has had some effect though very temporary. As a teenager, I used undiluted Dettol antiseptic on my face for acne. I am wondering whether this could have actually "caused" my rosacea? Ie - damaged the blood vessels in my face?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that if you got the rosacea then this may not be due to the Dettol but this might be skin condition and this need to be treated separately hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.
