Redness and Rosacea
Redness and rosacea are common skin conditions that are often related. Persistent redness or flushing on the cheeks, forehead and chin is usually early or mild rosacea. In moderate rosacea redness can be more pronounced or even permanent. Blood vessels on the face may become larger and more visible and small pimple-like bumps may appear. In advanced rosacea inflammation is severe and may even lead to a disfiguring condition known as rhinophyma. Rosacea is more common in women but men can also be affected. It is most common in patients with fair skin and those with a history of easy blushing or flushing.
