Rosacea can have multiple triggering factors like hot beverages, sunlight exposure, sweating, hormonal changes, etc. Treatment depends on stage of rosacea and medicines has to be taken in different phases which can be gradually reduced and stopped. I would suggest you take clear pictures showing affected areas and send the query so that I can check properly and suggest the treatment plan. Also mention if you are allergic to any medicine or have any hormonal issues or if you are taking medicines for some other issues as few medicines can also aggravate rosacea. All the best.
