What Is Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic disease of the skin that causes inflammation, redness, bumps, pimples, and skin thickening. The characteristic skin inflammation of rosacea most often occurs on the face, though it can also occur on other parts of the upper body.

According to the National Rosacea Society, rosacea affects more than 16 million Americans and typically develops between the ages of 30 and 50. With successful treatment, rosacea symptoms can be significantly reduced. If left untreated, the disease can cause lasting damage to the skin.
