In brief: ROSACEA
Rosacea is a rash on the face that looks like you are blushing.
Rarely, it can affect the eyes. Sun and alcoholic beverages make it worse, so do many foods. Treatment usually consists of taking an oral antibiotic and applying a prescription cream or lotion (metrogel or metrolotion) to the face twice daily. Nerves will make it worse.
