What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition, characterised by red blotches and papules. You may also experience visible blood vessels and scaly patches. It affects more women than men, and occurs predominantly in those between the ages of 30 and 50. People with fairer skin are at greater risk.
Rosacea most commonly occurs on the face (cheeks and chin). However, it can also affect the scalp, causing flaking, itching and redness. There is currently no cure for rosacea, but symptoms can usually be managed.
