Rosacea is an inflammatory condition that mainly affects the cheeks, forehead and nose.
Symptoms can include:
Episodes of flushing where the skin becomes red for short periods of time.
Itchy, stingy and burning skin.
Permanent redness, which often appears dry.
Small white and yellow pimples on the skin which may become fluid filled (pustules).
Thread veins, which gradually become larger.
Irritation of the eyes, which may appear red and watery. Styes and visual problems can also develop. This is known as ocular rosacea.
Thickening and inflammation of the nose. This can become bulbous and develop into a condition called rhinophyma.
