What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that causes patches of redness on the body, most commonly on the face or eyes. For some, rosacea also forms pus-filled bumps resembling acne. There is no cure for rosacea, but there are effective lifestyle changes and treatment options that help with symptom management.
The appearance of rosacea may come and go during flare ups, and certain environmental triggers may make symptoms worse or more noticeable. The best treatment option depends on the type of rosacea and how the symptoms manifest on the skin.
