Facial Redness (Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea)

Facial redness and flushing are the most common signs of rosacea and usually are the first to develop. As the condition worsens, diffuse generalized redness can persist, as well as skin roughness and irritation.

Bumps and Pimples (Papulopustular Rosacea)

Pimples and raised skin patches known as plaques can also develop on the skin in addition to the redness.

Enlargement of the Nose (Phymatous Rosacea)

Rosacea may also cause rhinophyma, an enlargement of the nose causing a large, bulbous, appearance.

Ocular Rosacea

Ocular is also common in many rosacea suffers and can be diagnosed by an ophthalmologist. Symptoms of ocular rosacea usually include runny or swollen eyes, bloodshot eyes and stinging.
