Q&A: Permanent Facial Redness & Rosacea in 20s

Q. Does each flare-up increase my chances of permanent facial redness?

Survey Dispels Myth That Rosacea Usually Strikes Between 30 and 50

Results of a new survey by the National Rosacea Society (NRS) dispelled the common myth that rosacea usually affects people between the ages of 30 and 50, and also found that new signs and symptoms may develop decades after the initial onset of the condition.

In the NRS survey of 1,391 rosacea patients, only 43 percent said their rosacea first appeared between the ages of 30 and 50, while 39 percent reported that the disorder occurred after age 50 and an additional 17 percent said they developed rosacea prior to age 30.
