Acne and rosacea

Acne rosacea is not real acne condition; instead, it's more of an inflammation of your face, neck, and chest that appear oily, red, and bumpy. Acne rosacea tends to shows up in people between the age range of thirty and sixty. It usually starts as a brief skin condition which may advance to a more severe state and create scarring on the face when it's not treated properly.

Acne rosacea is a chronic acneiform disorder affecting both the skin and the eye. It is a syndrome of undetermined etiology characterized by both vascular and papulopustular components involving the face and occasionally the neck and upper trunk.

Ocular rosacea is a term used to describe the spectrum of eye findings associated with the skin involvement.

Treatment, Rosacea Care and Medication

Rosacea is a skin disease that causes redness, pimples, and red lines on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. A rash over the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin often occurs. People sometimes call it "adult acne" because it can cause pimple-like outbreaks. Rosacea can also cause burning and soreness in the eyes and eyelids.

You may control rosacea with medication and by avoiding triggers that lead to flare-ups. Left untreated, rosacea can get worse. Large, disfiguring bumps on the nose and face and serious eye problems are signs of severe rosacea.

Fair-skinned people between the ages of 30 and 60 are most likely to develop rosacea. Women are more likely to have rosacea, but men usually have more severe symptoms
