Rosacea can affect anyone, but is most common in fair-skinned adults between the ages of 30 and 50 years old. Women are more affected by this condition than men, since it is often associated with menopause.


Symptoms most commonly appear on the nose, cheeks, mouth, & forehead. Patients with rosacea may experience:

  • Redness
  • Small red bumps or pustules
  • Visible blood vessels
  • Flushing or blushing easily
  • Burning or stinging of the facial skin
  • Dry, irritated eyes

  • Hot or spicy foods
  • Alcohol
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Sunlight
  • Stress
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Certain medications

Rosacea will not improve or resolve on its own. Treatment for rosacea is specific to each person and severity of the condition. Treatment options include:

  • Antibacterial medicines
  • Oral antibiotics
  • Topical creams and gels
