What I tell my patients about...rosacea

Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory condition of the facial skin which produces redness related to vascular hyper-reactivity and also raised papules and pustules.

This article considers the four distinct types of rosacea – erythematotelangiectatic or vascular, papulopustular or inflammatory, phymatous and ocular. It also looks at where the condition can present, what causes it, what the signs are, other potential conditions with similar symptoms, whether it can be cured, potential triggers, and what treatments there are.
