Rosacea is a condition that causes redness on the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead, with some people developing red solid bumps and pus-filled pimples. It is a common disorder that affects 16 million Americans. While people of all ages and races can develop rosacea, it is most common between the ages of 30-60 years and in individuals with fair skin, blond hair and blue eyes.
Left untreated, rosacea tends to get worse over time. Antibiotics or anti-acne medications, as well as laser or light therapy treatment, can control and reduce symptoms.
