Rosacea is a very common red, acne-like benign skin condition that affects an estimated 16 million people in the U.S. alone. Most individuals with rosacea are Caucasian and have fair skin. Rosacea characteristically involves the central region of the face, causing persistent redness or transient flushing over the area of the face and nose that normally blush such as the forehead, chin, and lower half of the nose. Main symptoms include red or pink patches, visible tiny broken blood vessels, small red bumps, red cysts, and pink or irritated eyes. Most people with the disease may not even know they have rosacea or that it is a diagnosable and treatable condition. Many people may just assume they blush or flush easily or are just extremely sun sensitive.
