During menopause, in my early 50s, it took over my face. I was so red and splotchy friends thought I was going to have a heart attack. I had ocular rosacea, too.
My doctor suggested estrogen therapy. I took estrogen-progestin for six months, then tapered down over two years. (I also tried doxycycline and topical prescription gels and creams. I felt the estrogen therapy was better at the time.)
My skin returned to normal most of the time. Eventually, I dropped estrogen therapy altogether.
