Rosacea is a common skin condition that can lead to pimples, bumps, redness, flushing and broken blood vessels on the face. These signs are usually maximal in the central face.

It is not certain what causes rosacea, but sun exposure, alcohol and spicy foods, are thought to exacerbate symptoms.

This condition can best be controlled with laser and/or intense pulsed light therapy and will require several treatments. Topical and oral medications may also assist with management.
