Rosacea is an inflammatory condition that flares in response to various triggers. It is commonly misdiagnosed as acne although it is not acne. Fourteen million adults in the US have rosacea although 25 percent are unaware of their diagnosis and of measures that could be helpful for their symptoms. Symptoms begin gradually between the ages of 30 and 50 and are progressive. Aesthetic treatments and topicals are very helpful for rosacea.
