Rosacea is a common skin condition, typically arising in fair-skinned individuals between 30-50 years of age. There are two main types of rosacea:
- Papulopustular – This type of rosacea looks very similar to acne with red spots and small pustules. Patients often develop swelling of the nose, known as a rhinophyma.
- Erythrotelangiectatic – This presents with diffuse redness, flushing and broken blood vessels.
Often, patients experience both types and rosacea can even affect the eyes (with a feeling of grittiness and a bloodshot look).
