To deal with the redness, her doctor prescribed Mirvaso, a topical gel recently approved by the food and drug administration. What the gel is doing is constricting the blood vessels in the skin so you just don't see the redness in the skin.
About 16 million Americans have Rosacea. It is most common in women between 30 and 60 years old.
The exact cause of Rosacea is unclear, but some things make it better or worse. The triggers are stress, alcohol and extremes in temperature and different spices for different people.
Mirvaso reduces the redness for up to 12 hours. Rosemary applies it in the morning and at night.
