Rosacea is a facial rash that occurs in middle-aged men and women.
It is tought to be related to an overgrowth of a mite that normally resides on the skin.
Rosacea affects people mainly in the 30s and 40s, especially those with fair-skin, blue eyes and of Celtic origin.
Rosacea used to be called "acne rosacea" but it is quite different from acne.
The red spots and pustules are dome-shaped rather than pointed and there are no blackheads, whiteheads, deep cysts, or lumps.
Sometimes the affected skin is swollen and hot.
Rosacea affects the cheeks, nose and forehead , rarely it involves the trunk and upper limbs. Facial creams or oils, and topical steroids may aggravate it.
