Acne Rosacea

Acne Rosacea is most commonly found in adults who are fair-skinned with red colored hair, and often mistaken as a form of acne.  Rosacea is identified by the reddish discoloration in the cheeks, nose and forehead.  The tiny blood vessels dilate under the skin and give the appearance of “Blushing”.  Pimples may be present in acne rosacea but there are usually no blackheads or whiteheads.  Initially the redness may come and go, but if left untreated it will gradually get worse with pimples and permanent flushing of the face.  In extreme cases none treatment of acne rosacea can lead to disfigurement of the nose and puffy cheeks.  Acne rosacea can also cause gritty feelings in the eyes that if left untreated can lead to impaired vision.  The only known cure for acne rosacea in these extreme cases is cosmetic surgery.

Acne Rosacea can appear in both women and men, although women do tend to get Acne Rosacea more often, Men tend to have more severe symptoms.
