In brief: Rosacea?
An occasional red nose is normal because the nose contains many small veins and capillaries.
However, repeated flushing of the nose may be a sign of rosacea, especially if redness of the face is accompanied by other findings such as sensitive skin (stinging, burning), papules, pustules, broken capillaries or red gritty eyes. Other conditions such as lupus can mimic rosacea.Consult a dermatologist.

In brief: Rosacea
Rosacea often flares when something causes the blood vessels in the face to expand, which causes redness.
Things that cause a flare-up are called triggers. Common triggers are exercise, sun and wind exposure, hot weather, stress, spicy foods, alcohol, and hot baths. Swings in temperature from hot to cold or cold to hot can also cause a flare.
