Chronic conditions: rosacea

Symptoms, triggers and treatments

Rosacea is a chronic condition that affects millions globally. It is characterised by facial redness that is often mistaken for blushing or sunburn. It's common in women and people with lighter skin, but symptoms can be worse in men as they may delay seeking treatment. Symptoms range from facial redness to acne-like bumps and thickened skin, and can also affect the eyes. There is currently no cure for rosacea, but treatments and selfmanagement can help to control the symptoms.
