Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness in your face and often produces small, red, pus-filled bumps. The cause of rosacea is unknown, but it could be due to some combination of hereditary and environmental factors. While there’s no cure for rosacea, treatments can control and reduce the signs and symptoms. If you experience persistent redness of your face, see your doctor for a diagnosis and proper treatment. Rosacea should be treated at its earliest manifestations to mitigate progression to the stages of edema and irreversible fibrosis. Antibiotics have traditionally been considered the first line of therapy, although their success is considered to be primarily due to anti-inflammatory effects rather than antimicrobial ones.
