Picture of Rosacea 2
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes redness, papules, and pustules to form on the skin. Typically rosacea only affects the face, and may cause a swollen nose, itchy eyes, small, broken blood vessels under the skin, and sometimes vision problems along with the characteristic redness of the face. There is no cure for rosacea. The condition is not dangerous. Treatment for rosacea may include topical medications, creams, sunscreen, laser treatments, and antibiotics (topical and oral). Doctors may also use dermabrasion and electrocautery to treat the condition.
