Rosacea is a chronic disorder primarily of the facial skin. It typically begins any time after age 30 as a redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that comes and goes. Over time, the redness tends to become more persistent, and more visible blood vessels appear. Left untreated, bumps and pimples often develop. Although rosacea can affect anybody, individuals with fair skin who tend to blush easily are more likely to suffer from it.
