Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that causes redness and swelling on the face; including the forehead, chin, and lower half of the nose. In addition to inflammation of the facial skin, symptoms include dilation of the blood vessels and pimples (acne rosacea) on the cheek area. Redness can also spread to the neck, ears and the chest. Symptoms range from red pimples, lines and visible blood vessels to dry or burning skin and a tendency to flush easily.
Rosacea affects roughly 14 million Americans and typically appears in light-skinned, light haired adults aged 30 to 70. It is not known what causes rosacea and the disease is not curable, although it can be treated in many ways, including topical and oral medications and laser treatments. Early detection and intervention are essential to achieve the most effective control of this condition. If left untreated, rhinophyma (a disfiguring nose condition) may result.
