There are a few treatment options for erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, but your doctor will first probably try to help you figure out what triggers your rosacea. Knowing your triggers can help you avoid anything that causes your symptoms to flare.

Your doctor may recommend a skin-care routine that involves using gentle products that do not contain irritants, as well as cosmetics that can help reduce the appearance of redness. Blood vessels that are visible and redness that is severe may be treated with pulsed light therapy, which takes several sessions to be effective. There are also medications that can reduce redness if necessary.
