What is Rosacea?

Rosacea manifests itself as persistent redness, spots, visible blood vessels and/or thickened skin, resembling a similar appearance to Acne. Women are three to four times more likely to develop rosacea, particularly during or after menopause because of hormonal changes in the body.

When this affects men it can be more severe. Men may also experience more severe symptoms of rosacea, because they are more likely to ignore early symptoms and warning signs and therefore delay treatment.
