Rosacea is a common skin condition that results in redness, prominent blood vessels, and inflamed papules on your face. Additional symptoms include dry and swollen eyes and eyelids and a thickened, bulbous nose.

Rosacea is a chronic condition; breakouts can last for weeks before receding.

No cure exists for rosacea, but early treatments can manage and reduce its symptoms. If ignored, rosacea can result in a buildup of tissue on and around your nose. This can seriously detract from your appearance, which can lead to lower self-esteem and depression.

More About Rosacea


The causes of rosacea are unclear. However, genetics do play a role in its development. Certain environmental factors can also facilitate rosacea:

  • Ultraviolet radiation 
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Drugs that dilate blood vessels
  • Some cosmetic products
  • Some foods and alcoholic beverages

Rosacea is not an indication of poor facial hygiene. 

Who is at risk? 

Rosacea can affect anyone, but it is most common in middle-aged women with light skin. While men are less susceptible to rosacea, they are more likely to develop a bulbous nose if they do get it. 

What are the most effective treatments? 

Treatments exist for each symptom associated with rosacea. Topical drugs and oral antibiotics can reduce redness and inflamed papules. Repeated laser therapy can minimize the enlarged blood vessels by targeting hemoglobin. Isotretinoin is reserved for severe cases that do not respond well to other treatments.
