Diagnosing Rosacea

Small red bumps ("pimples" or "papules"), some of which may contain pus ("pustules"), appear on the face.

These may be accompanied by persistent redness and the development of many tiny blood vessels ("telangiectasia") on the surface of the skin.

The skin is often sensitive, rough, dry, and may be itchy, sting, or have a tingling sensation.

Many over the counter skin products (e.g. creams, soaps) can irritate people with rosacea, moreso than people with regular skin.

In more advanced cases (mainly in men), a condition called "rhinophyma" may develop. In rhinophyma, the oil glands enlarge causing a bulbous, red nose, and puffy cheeks. Thick bumps may develop on the lower half of the nose and nearby cheeks.

Eye symptoms and signs such as grittiness, redness, dryness, and frequent styes or chalazions are also particularly common in people with rosacea.
