Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.

Rosacea can be treated very effectively now,

Newer modalities like retinoids and lasers can treat rosacea effectively.

Angioedema needs to be investigated for the cause.
Acne and rosacea can be treated simultaneously by retinoids.
Discuss the option of Dapsone with your dermatologist.It will have rapid effect. Will reduce the symptoms and patches effectively.

Hope this helps.
