Rosacea is a common skin condition with symptoms of facial flushing, erythema, telangiectasia, and inflammatory papulopustular.  The face of people with rosacea gets red easily especially in the areas of the gills, nose, chin, and forehead. When capillaries continue to dilate, an acne-like papule appears. If the situation gets serious, a papulopustular eruption occurs and the skin will become very sensitive.

There are no defined causes for rosacea at the moment, but it is believed that alcohol, spicy food, extreme temperature change, and irritating topical products are some of the triggering factors.

To improve the condition, oral or topical medicines may be applied to prevent facial flushing caused by inflammation, complementary therapies include pulsed dye laser or intense pulse light treatment which targets vasodilation.  Daily use of mild, non-irritating skin care products is recommended.
