According to the National Rosacea Society, more than 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea. Often mistaken for other conditions, rosacea may go undiagnosed. While rosacea is a chronic condition, it can be treated using a variety of techniques depending on the type and severity of the condition.
What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that is indicated by redness appearing on the face, caused by visible blood vessels. In some cases, rosacea may also produce small pustules which can flare up for a period of weeks or months before once again going dormant. Because of its similarity of symptoms, rosacea is often mistaken for acne or an allergic reaction.
