What Does Rosacea Look Like?
Rosacea is a common, chronic condition that typically begins with flushing and visible blood vessels on your cheeks and nose, but it can affect your entire face as well as your ears, neck, chest and back. Rosacea can progress into persistent redness, pimple-like pustules and even cystic bumps. The most advanced cases can result in the oil glands of your skin becoming enlarged, making your nose larger and your cheeks puffy. About 50% of patients have symptoms in the eyes, which include dryness, burning and grittiness.
