Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial flushing and redness, telangiectasia, papules, pustules on the cheek, chin, and nose, and swelling. Rosacea affects all ages, but it is typically seen between 30 to 50 years of age. The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but several factors are believed to contribute to its development, including genetics, UV exposure, and certain medications. Treatment for rosacea typically involves antibiotics like topical metronidazole and oral doxycycline, and protecting the skin from excessive sun exposure.
