APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - It is a painful and uncomfortable condition. One that is difficult to deal with. We explain how to handle rosacea in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

Dr. John Clay is on the case.

Symptoms include reddened skin and pimples affecting the forehead, nose, chin and cheeks.

Dr. Clay tells us that rosacea is worsened by emotional stress, spicy foods and alcohol.

Also, new onset acne or facial redness  is often greater over age 30.
