Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is a skin condition that causes flushing, redness and, sometimes, visible blood vessels on the face. It is one of the subtypes of rosacea.

Rosacea is a very common skin condition, affecting some 16 million people in the United States, according to the National Rosacea Society. It can be made worse by particular triggers and irritants. Left untreated, it can progress to skin that has visible blood vessels, bumps, and pimples and eventually thickens.

Your doctor can offer you a few treatment options for the condition, and there also are some lifestyle modifications you can make to manage it well.
