Stay Cool in Bed

I have noticed that changing temperatures quickly causes facial flushing that lasts for around one to two hours. So at night when I get into bed, I don’t cover myself completely with my covers, I try to stay cool and not get too warm. If I do get warm too quickly my nose and cheeks turn red and burn.

Box Fan

I run a small box fan near my bed at night.  The cool air seems to keep my rosacea calmer.

Portable Fan

To help reduce flushing in hot weather I use a battery-operated person fan that I always carry in my purse.  The model I prefer has an adjustable head and a suction cup on the bottom.  The blade is soft plastic and is removable.  It operates on one C battery, which often lasts for several hours.  I buy them online, keep a few in reserves and stash one in the car and at friends’ houses.

About It Works for Me

Beyond medical therapy prescribed by your doctor, a vast array of other measures have been discovered by patients to help control their condition. It Works for Me is a venue for sharing reports from rosacea patients, as well as physicians, who have written over the years to tell us, "I tried this, and it works for me," in hopes that they might help other rosacea sufferers with their individual cases. If you have a tip to share, please email it to, and it may be included here.
