Rosacea is a very common chronic inflammatory disorder of the skin.
Rosacea is most often seen on the center portion of your face first and over time can spread to the rest of the face if left untreated. Rosacea is not contagious.
The nose and inner cheek area near the nose will have a flushed reddish look and several broken capillaries (blood vessels) that are quite visible. Rosacea can also be seen on the chest area and in severe cases it can be found on the scalp and neck.
Rosacea can start of with a mild pink flushed look. Over time the area can become very red and blotchy with the nose swelling in size. It may have an acne like appearance. It can be itchy or feel like its’ hot when flushed.
