Hi my dad appears to be suffering from rosacea. I know he finds it very embarassing and it makes him feel very self concious. He is going through a very stressful time at the minute which I imagine is aggravating the problem and I would really like to help him.

The trouble is I am finding it difficult to raise a conversation with him regarding this as I know he is feeling very low and I dont want to embarass him. He is a typical man doesnt like to discuss things. Just wondered if anyone had any tips for products I could get for him to try and help him.

The only thing that worked for me was long term antibiotics. Nothing I bought ever worked and most actually made it worse.

Same. Antibiotics are the only thing that works.
