Conditions: Rosacea

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition, characterized by redness and bumps or pimples that most often appear on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. It can burn and itch. Some people can also develop rosacea on the neck, chest, and scalp. It most often appears after the age of 30 years old.

What if rosacea goes untreated?

Your rosacea symptoms can reoccur from time to time. They may flare up for a few weeks, fade, and then come back.

Getting treatment is a must, so make sure you see your doctor. If you don't take care of your rosacea, redness and swelling can get worse and might become permanent.
