Rosacea is a common, long-term skin condition involving inflammation of the skin on the face. The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, and it affects twice as many women as men, although it is usually more severe in men.
Typical symptoms include red spots and persistent redness of the skin in the centre of the face. Small blood vessels in the skin can become visible. In the most severe cases, the skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on and around the nose.
Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, an allergic reaction or other skin problems.
There is no cure for rosacea, but the following products should help to control and reduce the symptoms.
