I comb, but only after my hair is dry, so that it doesn't pull out the waves and leave those ridiculous flips at the ends! I use a very wide tooth comb, and haven't damaged my hair too much. I just...

I agree, it could be rosacea. Unfortunately. My mother has it. Apparently it is usually aggravated by UV rays too, so it helps to be meticulous about sunscreen use.
