Rosacea is an acne-like facial skin disorder. It generally first appears when people are in their 30s, 40s or 50s as a redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that comes and goes. This early stage is often mistaken for a simple complexion problem or sunburn and ignored.
Left untreated, the redness becomes more permanent and tiny blood vessels may become visible. Bumps and pimples often develop and in advanced cases, especially in men, the nose may become bumpy, red and swollen from excess tissue. In some individuals the eyes may feel gritty and appear watery or bloodshot.
Is there a cure for Rosacea?
Rosacea cannot be cured, but its symptoms can be reduced and its progression arrested through treatment and lifestyle modifications. Because it is a chronic disorder, research has found that sufferers usually must adhere to long-term medical therapy.
