Clinical Overview

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that causes redness in the face and may produce small pus-filled bumps or pustules. Due to its appearance, rosacea may be mistaken for acne, eczema, or skin allergies. The cause of rosacea remains unknown, but fair-skinned people who blush easily are at increased risk for developing the condition. Women and persons between the ages of 30 and 50 also have an increased likelihood of developing rosacea. If untreated, rosacea will get progressively worse over time. In most cases, rosacea is cyclic, which means that symptoms may lessen for a period of weeks or months before flaring up again.
