When to See a Doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Lumps containing pus

Possible Causes

  • Rosacea

    A skin condition, which also often involves flushings. The exact cause is unclear, but genetics, immune system reactions and exposure to sunlight appear to be involved.

  • Rosacea-like dermatitis

    A condition that causes red, uneven spots on the face, which often become flushed. This is caused by use of steroids on the face, and usually resolves once the steroids are stopped.

  • Erythroderma

    This is a severe and potentially deadly skin condition where there is inflammation and redness involving almost all the skin of the body. This is triggered by various causes, such as certain drugs and viral infections.
