Chronic but treatable skin condition that primarily affects the central face and is often characterized by flare-ups and remissions
It is estimated that approximately 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea1 which is a chronic but treatable skin condition that primarily affects the central face and is often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. In a survey conducted by the National Rosacea Society, nearly 90% of rosacea patients said this condition had lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, and 41% reported it had caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements.
Persistent facial redness (erythema) is cited as the most common sign of rosacea and may resemble a flushing or sunburn that does not go away. Typical triggers include sun exposure, stress, weather, food, and exercise. It is now considered a primary diagnostic criteria for rosacea2, and has been reported to be the most troublesome symptom of the disease3.
