What is it? Rosacea is a common vascular facial skin problem that is most common in adults over the age of 30. Symptoms can present themselves in a variety of ways:
- The most common symptom of Rosacea is facial redness or flushing. This occurs most frequently in people with fair skin and over the age of 30 but it is not limited to those individuals. This condition may come and go or be persistent and could be the first sign of Rosacea.
- Another common sign of Rosacea is small, red lines beneath the skin. These are visible blood vessels just below the skin on the face.
- Less common but more noticeable symptoms are pimples or swollen bumps on the nose. While these bumps may look like acne, it’s not the same. The breakout may appear with our without blackheads or pustules.
