Redness and breakouts caused by rosacea can be treated with skin creams that contain active ingredients such as azelaic acid, brimonidine or metronidazole, advises WebMD. Pills, such as low-dose antibiotics like doxycycline may also help.
Rosacea is a skin disease that is quite common and affects people over 30 years of age. It is responsible for a number of symptoms, including redness on the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead, small bumps and pimples on red areas of the face, and burning or soreness of the eyes, says WebMD. There is no cure for rosacea, but there are several treatments available to help sufferers manage symptoms and prevent the condition from worsening.
