Rosacea is a chronic skin condition involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids. It may appear as redness, prominent spider-like blood vessels, swelling, or skin eruptions similar to acne.
Rosacea can describe someone who blushes easily to someone who has debilitating redness and enlarged veins on the face. It represents a low level of inflammation due to an altered protein that some people have a predisposition for, especially fair skinned people. Rosacea involves enlargement of the blood vessels just under the skin. This enlargement gives the skin that red appearance.
