Rosacea Information

A chronic skin condition that is more common in women than men, rosacea is characterized by redness, pimples, and, in advanced stages, thickened skin. The condition tends to occur more frequently in people with fair skin; however, it can occur in people of any skin color.
 
Up to 50 percent of people with the skin disease also have eye problems, such as blurred vision, sensitivity to light, and inflamed eyelids. Although there is no cure for rosacea, various antibiotics are available to treat symptoms of the disease.
