Redness

Rosacea causes a range of symptoms, although not everyone will experience them all.

Most people with rosacea have periods when their symptoms are particularly troublesome, followed by periods when their symptoms are less so.

The main symptoms of rosacea include:

  • flushing
  • persistent facial redness
  • visible blood vessels
  • papules and pustules
  • thickened skin

Other symptoms associated with rosacea include:

  • sensitive skin – burning, itching, stinging and pain
  • dry, rough skin
  • raised red patches (plaques) on your skin
  • facial swelling (lymphoedema)
