Rosacea is a common rash, found on the central part of the face, usually of a middle-aged person. A tendency to flush easily is followed by persistent redness on the cheeks, chin, forehead and nose, and by crops of small inflamed red bumps and pus spots.
Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. It’s more common in women and people with lighter skin, but symptoms can be worse in men. Treatment can help with symptoms.
The first signs of rosacea include
redness (blushing) across your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin that comes and goes
a burning or stinging feeling when using water or skincare products
The redness may be harder to see on darker skin.
Acne is a very common skin condition characterised by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and pus-filled spots (pustules).
