  1. Rosacea

    Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema and sometimes pimples. Rosacea affects all ages and has four subtypes, three affecting the skin and the fourth affecting the eyes. Left untreated it worsens over time. Treatment in the form of topical steroids can aggravate the condition. It primarily affects Caucasians of north western European descent and has been nicknamed the 'curse of the Celts' by some in Britain and Ireland, although recently this has been questioned. Rosacea affects both sexes, but is almost three times more common in women. It has a peak age of onset between 30 and 60. Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. In some cases, additional symptoms, such as semi-permanent redness, telangiectasia, red domed papules and pustules, red gritty eyes, burning and stinging sensations, and in some advanced cases, a red lobulated nose, may develop.
