Rosacea is a common condition that causes redness on the skin. It is typically found on the face, but may sometimes spread to the ears, chest or back. This redness may appear as a slight color variation on the skin, but it may also include acne-like breakouts or swollen bumps.
Rosacea most commonly affects middle aged women with fair skin, but can affect males or females of any age. The exact cause of rosacea is unknown and can worsen if left untreated. The condition can flare up for a period of weeks to months and may sometimes be mistaken for acne or an allergic reaction.
