Understanding Rosacea

Primary Signs of Rosacea

  • Flushing

    Many people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.

  • Persistent Redness

    Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.

  • Bumps and Pimples

    Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.

  • Visible Blood Vessels

    In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels become visible on the skin.

Our Mission

The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace

consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
