Rosacea traditionally begins as redness across the face, producing an almost flushing appearance on the cheeks and forehead. It is caused by the swelling of the blood vessels below the skin. Over time as the swelling continues the redness can become more permanent in appearance and in very advanced forms cause complications to the blood vessels on the nose. The condition can also produce spots on the skin, which causes the condition to often be misdiagnosed as acne.
The condition is most common in women and normally develops between the ages of 30-50. People with fair skin are also more prone to the condition. It is estimated that 1 in 10 people having Rosacea at any one time.
