WHAT IS ROSACEA?

Rosacea is common inflammatory acne like skin condition. It presents as recurrent flushing, persistent redness, visible blood vessels and bumps on the skin. The condition most often affects the forehead, cheeks, nose & chin and less commonly it can affect the eyes or result in a disfiguring of the nose (Rhinophyma) which occurs mostly in men. Faired skinned people who blush easily or who have a family history of a reddish complexion are more likely to develop Rosacea.
