WHAT IS ROSACEA?
Rosacea is a common, chronic skin disorder affecting the central face. It is an episodic and variable condition but classically presents as acne-like bumps (papules and pustules), red or pink patches with broken capillaries.
It can, in turn, lead to red bumps appearing, which can resemble teenage acne. The areas of the face most often impacted are the cheeks, chin and the nose. Rosacea is more common in women and typically presents between the ages of 30 to 50.
